Unknown Iowa River Bridge
Posted May 17, 2018, by Luke

Given the fact that imagery from 1905 shows no bridge at Park Road, I'm going to categorize this one as a mystery bridge.

Aforementioned imagery: https://books.google.com/books?id=5xBjpPdExPIC&pg=PT100&dq=C...

There are several bridges in the region this imagery could be of, such as the old iterations of the Butler or Dupont bridges.
