Photographs of Vassar Creek Bridge
Posted April 7, 2013, by Aaron Hall (ahall [at] vitaphone [dot] net)

Some photos taken April 7th, 2013. The plaques confirm that the bridge was built in 1917. The builder was Allen & Fulton of Topeka.

"The American Contractor" of November 11, 1916 has a note that the contract was let to Allen & Fulton for $4,753. (It's amazing what Google has digitized.) Link: http://goo.gl/dDyy1
