Nolands Fork Railroad Bridge
Posted April 18, 2016, by Diana L Yates (dianay1955 [at] gmail [dot] com)

I think I may have a picture of what could have been this bridge. My great grandfather built bridges in t h e early 1900's. I have been searching to find the actual place where the bridge was located. The photo is a long one and has several men standing on the framework of the bridge. If there is an interest in inspecting the photo, please contact me.
