The Shakespeare Bridge was built in 1926 by J.C. Wright.
The ravine over which the bridge was built was once a perennial stream called Arroyo de la Sacatela.

A view from below... (Sacatela Creek has long been covered over)

John Marshall high School in 1931.


A further look at Arroyo de la Sacatela (feeding into Bimini Slough).

We all recognize Bimini Slough because of the oft-posted Bimini Baths, located downstream from the Shakespeare Bridge
and the Arroyo de la Sacatela.

Past posts on the Bimini Baths (along with El Patio Gardens/Rainbow Gardens/Palomar Ballroom...same place different names)
