The C&S (Charleston and Savannah) Bridge was located further upstream from this location. This bridge later became part of the Seaboard Air Line when they constructed their line to Charleston. It was also replaced with a Bascule Bridge that lasted until 1952 when it was rebuilt into a Lift Bridge. On Oct 31, 1966 a ship struck the Bridge and caused major damage. The Bridge was repaired and continued to serve the SCL Railroad until April 21, 1971 when the Bridge was hit again, destroying it. The Bridge was removed and there is nothing there today. I believe the Picture is mislabeled but this was the Seaboard's bridge.
