Lethbridge Alberta Picture

Constructed in 1909, the High Level Bridge in Lethbridge, Alberta, remains the highest and longest bridge of it's type in the world.



It's the third largest city in Alberta and the hub of southern Alberta, but the city of Lethbridge had a humble beginning.

First established in the late 1800's Lethbridge, which once bore the name of Coalbanks, was originally situated in the Oldman River Valley and was only moved up onto the prairies in the early 1900's. In 1985 the name was officially changed to Lethbridge in honour of William Lethbridge, a prominent figure in the community through owning shares in the Northwest Coal and Navigation Company.

The construction of the High Level Rail Bridge by Canadian Pacific Railway enabled the rapid growth of the community which had its foundings in the coal mining industry. Eventually the town moved it's focus over to Agriculture which is now the mainstay industry for the town.
