Arch Lattice Railing

View Exhibit map

This category has been created to help progress a research project initiated by HistoricBridges.org which is to identify all examples of bridges (both existing and demolished) that display the railing design that is currently identified as "arch lattice railing." The exact design varies considerably. However the requirements are that the railing contains two rows in the panels, a lower panel that contains a narrow row of lattice, and an upper row which contains a pattern of arches that hint at the "gothic arch" type of shape. The railing design is not related to any particular bridge builder. The origins of the design are unknown. Any questions regarding this category should be directed to Nathan Holth, HistoricBridges.org. BridgeHunter editors, please add any bridges you find on BridgeHunter that contain railings of this particular style.
