Replaced an "old iron arch bridge" (bowstring?) about ten years old.
It was called the Brooklyn Bridge after the Brooklyn district of Waterbury in which it was located. In 1915 it was repaired, painted, and re-erected on Freight Street, a three-span masonry arch bridge replacing it on Bank Street. The Freight Street bridge was lost in the flood of April 7, 1924.
