Middle Creek Bridge
Posted June 11, 2020, by John N Vogel (jnvogel [at] hrltd [dot] org)

The photos here area actually of the Middle Creek Bridge on Middle Creek Road, town of Lima, built 1925, as the photo in the collection shows.

I have not seen the bridge on E. Elm Road, which is identified as a 1917 bridge that is/was closed to traffic.
