As far as I can tell, the bridge in the painting in the attached link was either on this road or WIndham Center Road. It is a two span iron through truss with vertical end posts but the diagonals suggest a Lenticular Truss. Are we seeing the actual structure or artistic license? Apparently, this is a significant painting.
