Old Iron Bridge Connecting Wyomissing and West Lawn

This iron bridge was on 422/Penn Ave connecting Wyomissing and West Lawn. It was torn down in the early 70s to make room for the new bypass. Attractions you may remember near here included the Queen of the Valley Restaurant and the old Shells Ice Cream location. If anyone has photos of these buildings I would love to see and share them. contact@berksnostalgia.com

  1. I remember the old Queen of the Valley, and Schell’s.I hope someone has pics. I also
    remember when 422 was a two-lane blacktop road running past the newly-built Berkshire Mall.
