Logansport 3rd St. Wabash River Bridge

With two rivers coming through town as they do, Logansport would *have* to be a city of bridges!

Not to mention there are a lot of bridges in Logansport which lends to the confusion!

One of my postcards proclaims them as "The City of Bridges".

Yes Jim, to say the least this page is a mess. The pictures were added to a page for a Luten Arch concrete bridge, so I'll have to work on separating it into different pages.

Thanks for the heads up!

I own a postcard of this bridge that places it over the Eel River, not the Wabash. Could we have mislocated it on this page?
