Description 

The original photographer is unconfirmed. Photos were acquired as negatives/glass slides at an estate sale a few years ago by another person. Someone else recognized the RR bridge as Clinton, Iowa. From that point it was possible to research the highway bridge thru the Clinton Historical Society which provided the photo and written history.
