Ambassador Bridge - Wedding Wednesday Update

This is an update on the post about finding the marriage record of my grandparents, Harry W. Gould & Marie Lindsay. 
See my post Wedding Wednesday - Where were they married?

I mentioned in my post that they had "driven across the bridge" from Detroit into Windsor, Ontario, Canada to get married.  Turns out they probably took a ferry.

As it turns out, the Ambassador Bridge connecting the two countries wasn't built until 1929.

You can find a good article about the Ambassador Bridge in wikipedia at this link  

I learned yet again, that we should never assume anything.  And, I continue to learn new things.

Thanks for stopping by.
See you soon,

Michigan Girl
