Good find Sheldon! This one is definitely historic.

Sheldon,

That's pretty cool. You actually found another bridge similar to this one. But I really can't tell the difference between these two. All I know is, either bridge could be at least a year older or younger than the other.

How are these bridges different? How are they the same?

Sheldon,

Nice job! I don't think I've ever seen a bridge like this before. Looks very historical!
