Picture taken without flash. Very dark area due to dense overgrowth. Bridge is almost overtaken by vines and such. See other pics with flash.

I wonder if this is an attempt to give some of the benefits of having outriggers attached to the verticals...but essentially an all-in-one deal.
It looks like this bridge has the "splayed verticals" that are found in the pony truss approach spans of this bridge: http://www.bridgehunter.com/tn/anderson/massengill/
This is a very unusual detail.
some of my dad's uncles used to ride on the railings of that bridge plus its on the registry of historic places.
Ok, need help here. NBI data on the replacement bridge shows that the new bridge was built in 1925. So, according to NBI, this bridge has been abandoned since then. This either means that the old bridge is really old, or that the NBI is in error. Any comments will be welcome.
