Yes indeed - like to create a post for that bridge, have a seperate individual postcard photo of it - was possibly the 1st 14th St. bridge (also called "South Bridge"), guessing that bowstring built 1880's or 90's, then double thru truss that was just torn down this year was built 1929, replacing it
