A classic scene photographed at sunset from the upper deck of Joe Lee´s Restaurant. The Kemah-Seabrook Drawbridge was open for sailboats to navigate under the bridge. This photograph is also printed in color.
The Kemah-Seabrook Drawbridge in this picture was a two-arm bridge that was built in 1962. It replaced a previous one-arm bridge connecting the towns of Seabrook and Kemah on the upper Texas Gulf coast. This bridge was dismantled in 1986 when the current fixed-span bridge was completed. The color version of the photograph has been published numerous times in the Clear Lake area including on the cover of the local telephone book in 1984, maps and magazines, mostly recently the cover of the June 2006 issue of Bay Runner magazine.
