Memorial Bridge crew pose for picture. These are the people who open the gates, ride up and down, and make sure the 850 ton 300 foot long slab of highway does not come crashing down on a passing ship. The crew then took the dignitaries for a short ride.

From 150 feet above the Piscataqua River two powerboats pass beneath the Memorial Bridge. About two dozen members of the rededication party took a ride, including Eillie and Eileen Foley. Gramma Eileen took the first ride in August 1923 with the governors of Maine and New Hampshire.
