I did think about the Keystone plaque but they flaired out and were a little wider at the bottom than WIBCo ones.

BTW, I think you are right, but thought I’d double check.

Tony,

I have seen a bridge plaque with that shape with “Keystone” on it :^)

Given the 1900 build date, Are you basing the builder by the plaque shape or secondary evidence?

Regards,
