Brooklyn Bridge Before the Bike and Pedestrian Lanes


We were shopping a while back and saw in a store this photo of the Brooklyn Bridge without a bike lane.

The bike / pedestrian lanes were first painted there in the early 70s, according to Wikipedia.

Don't know why there was just one white line painted along the edge.

There used to be flights of steps you had to carry your bike up at two spots along the walkway as well.
