The Bridge

Dedicated on February 12, 1926, the San Luis Rey Bridge, more commonly referred to as the Bonsall Bridge, was closed in March of 1990 upon completion of a new span across the San Luis Rey river. The old bridge served as the western entrance to Fallbrook for over 65 years. It was designed by Paul R. Watson and constructed by the McKay Engineering Company out of Los Angeles. The concrete bridge was of the Mission Arch design which was common throughout California during that era. Closed now to all but foot and bicycle traffic, the bridge has been the scene of several movies and has been used by the Fallbrook Vintage Car Club for outings for several years. On September 6, 2003 members gathered on the bridge for a picnic and photo shoot as shown on our 2004 poster.

The Artist

Jack Ragland puts the finishing touches on the 2004 Vintage Car Poster.

At five years of age Jack first crossed the Bonsall Bridge in the family La Salle when they moved to Rainbow. It was here that his long career as a fine artist began as he started sketching his horse on which he roamed the hills and valleys of the area. Now Jack’s works are in public and private collections in many parts of the world. He is listed in Who’s Who in America and seven other national and international biographical directories.
