Yes, I think that Sheldon is on the right track with this bridge.

Hey Anonymous, Don't try to stress Sheldon out this way. If there was someone else who added a bridge built in the 30's, you wouldn't mind.

Exciting - no. Historical value - yes.

I would disagree. It won't win any beauty contests, but it is historic (1935). The "fence rail" style was popular in the mid-late 1930's, early 1940's. There are still quite a few around, but they, too, are a vanishing breed in this day of same old sameness.

You may disagree, but that's your prerogative. Let's "agree to disagree" and move on.
