The red ghost lights that hover about 18″ off the ground at Old Point Ellice Bridge are believed to be remnants from the May 26, 1896 disaster when Point Ellice Bridge collapsed into the Upper Harbour under a laden streetcar. Of the 143 on board, 55 were killed. The cause was determined to be that the streetcar was overloaded and the bridge construction and maintenance were poor.
