Little Indian Creek John Pectol Road Bridge
Posted July 8, 2010, by Carol Butler (cbutler1467 [at] gmail [dot] com)

I've found the other bridge on John pectol Road, snd took a picture of the name plate. I know the date, 1930, but I can't quite read all of the inscription. If you could shed some light on this, it would be greatly appreciated.
