Albion River Bridge
Posted January 2, 2019, by Daniel

One of the photos states:

"Postcard of Albion Bridge from the 1930's?"

as the bridge was built in 1944, and the photo appears to show the current bridge (rather than the low pony truss that preceded it), I don't believe the claim of 1930s is accurate. I won't claim to know when it's from, though.

Oddly enough that photo is no longer on wiki, and google image search doesn't find it anywhere other than here. When I look at the wiki article from July 2013 it isn't there either.
