South Fork Patoka River Bridge
Posted January 31, 2018, by Mike Daffron (daffmikron [at] gmail [dot] com)

My uncle Adrian Ross had a thing for bridges long before I did. He has passed on and my mother has been finding a few interesting pix of bridges around Pike County, Indiana. Will post more as soon as I can identify them.
