K&W - Nodaway River Bridge
Posted September 28, 2020, by Clark Vance (cvance [at] dogmail [dot] com)

The link to the photo has gone dead.

I moved the location based on maps including this one:

There was another crossing of the other channel of the Nodaway east of here and I can't be sure if this bridge was here or to the east.
