that fuente españa is beautiful. why is it replaced by jones? was it destroyed by the war? did it finally collapsed because it is so ancient? or was it replaced because it will not be able to contain newer vehicles heavier than kalesas? or the government was so rich and it had nothing to do with the money so they decided to put up another bridge?
The bridge was only able to carry calesas, when the Americans brought cars, the bridge wasn't able to handle the increased load. This article is a great read about the heritage of Jones Bridge: http://www.tsinoy.com/Roots/Heritage.cfm?ID=405.
