SUNSET BEACH—Summer at the Old Bridge regularly features local speakers on a variety of topics related to the old Sunset Beach Bridge. Most recently Ed Gore and Bill Bradford shared stories.
Gore, whose father Mannon C. Gore built the original bridge, talked about how his father worked on the bridge at his shop near Twin Lakes Restaurant. Seated on lawn chairs under live oaks, a group of locals and visitors listened with interest. Mannon Gore also built a bridge to Figure Eight Island.
