Purgatory Post commemorates Bement Bridge on latest stamp

Purgatory Post earlier this month released the latest in its series of stamps picturing New Hampshire’s covered bridges. The newest installment in this series pictures Bement Bridge over the Warner River in Bradford, New Hampshire.

Purgatory Post 14-sola Bement Bridge stamp
Bement Bridge

The 14-sola stamp features a rich blue frame borrowed from the 1901 Pan-American Exposition issue.

Bement Bridge was originally built in 1854 at a cost of only $500.1 By the time the bridge needed a second round of repairs in the late 1960s, however, just that maintenance cost nearly 50 times as much as the original cost of construction! The bridge is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
