Great question. Did Cambria change thwir mark over that time? Or any of the steel makers?

Rebecca Burrows, were you studying that?

Wouldn't the BSCO Cambria stamp on the metal in picture 36 narrow the time of construction for this bridge?

I was looking at a piece of Cambria Steel the other day and decided to see what other bridges here had steel from that company. After 1923, per Wikipedia, it was a wholly owned subsidiary of Bethlehem Steel.

The updates say that J.P added year built and builders, but only the likely steel provider is here?
