These photos were taken during our recent visit to Fall River, MA.
Fall River is a city in the 10th largest city in the state of MA and is located on the eastern shore of Mount Hope Bay at the mouth of the Taunton River. Fall River was famed for its textile manufacturing industry. Its cotton mills brought prosperity to the city. The great fire of 1843, the Great Depression, slowing demand for print cloths after World War II, increased competition, and eventually, globalization, led to the demise of the industry leaving many empty factory and office spaces in the city.
These days, Fall River is famous for the Battleship Cove, among others. It hosts a large collection of WW II armory and serves as a memorial for the citizens of the State who served during the said War.
Here is a view of the Interchange as we headed northwards.
Highway 79. This road and viaduct goes under Braga Bridge.
The building under the bridge, Braga Bridge, hosts restaurants that cater to the visitors of Battleship Cove.
Water Under the Bridges. This little bridge under the big bridge (Braga Bridge) brings one to the ships that are anchored in the Cove.
Braga Bridge carries I-195, crosses the Taunton River, and connects the cities of Fall River and Somerset.
Ships on Exhibit guarded by winged sentinels: USS Lionfish, a submarine; USS Robert F. Kennedy; Hiddensee, a tarantul-class corvette; and the flagship, USS Massachusetts, the biggest ship in the collection.
