Another possibility - perhaps the bridge might have been moved from Industry to Wakefield before 1908. That would explain the label on the postcard. This one is a mystery for now.

I am suspecting that this bridge probably crossed Chapman Creek near the town of Industry, a short distance southwest of Wakefield. Historic aerials only goes back to 1964 for Industry.
