Looks like this bridge is the same as the Browns bridge.

The postcard shows a view of the bridge looking north from the Railroad trestle bridge.

My pleasure Melissa!

I always enjoy looking at these old photos and postcards and trying to fill in the blanks! This one is challenging though!

Hard to tell Melissa... The upper chord looks to be flat which would suggest a Pratt, Whipple or Baltimore truss. But it's too fuzzy to be sure.
