Westmoreland's Suspension Bridge is a lost structure which once served the mining town of Lancha Plana in Amador County, California.  Westmoreland's Suspension Bridge spanned the Mokelumne River as one of the first suspension bridges constructed in California.  Pictured as the blog cover photo is the abandoned Westmoreland's Suspension Bridge as it was featured in the September 1950 California Highways & Public Works.  Lancha Plana and the site of Westmoreland's Suspension Bridge were flooded when the Commanche Reservoir began to form in 1963.
