Little Tallahatcheecreek Bridge
Posted March 17, 2012, by Clark Vance (cvance [at] dogmail [dot] com)

This one is worth a look. Described by NBI as a 1954 pony truss, yet it looks like the trusses are more of a decorative guard rail, perhaps inspired by a previous or nearby truss bridge. The load seems to be carried by beams supported on a center pier.
