No road or bridge on the 1957 quad, so probably relocated by private party.

Hi Sheldon. Thank you for uploading your photo on here. This is a great little pony truss.

The man who owns this property is a distant relative of mine. I came by this place on my way to deliver feed for his cattle which was right across the creek in a corral on the side of 80th St. Before I crossed the bridge on 80th St., I pulled into his pasture here where I was surprised to see this bridge. I didn't have time to take a whole bunch of photos because I had to get to work with the feed. I only had time to take one photo.

Yes, I would agree with that. I was hoping he would start contributing here again.

Hats off to Sheldon for checking on this. It looks like a ca. 1890 - 1910 Pratt pony truss to me. It might even be wrought iron.

Please note that this bridge is on private property - ask permission.

It looks like the owner is using it to access a pasture.
