Nice to see a bridge with it's original railings intact! These are likely what will set this bridge apart from most other stringers. Nice find Sheldon!

Good find Sheldon. Judging from the streetview this bridge has potetial for good photos and historic content. I agree with Jason, I would love to see some photos. Is there anyway you can take some?
