Kentucky & Indiana Bridge (Old)
Posted December 14, 2015, by JeffersonClark (Jeffersonclark [at] insightbb [dot] com)

The first two sketches ARE NOT the old K&I.

They are of the Pennsylvania (panhandle) Bridge.

The K&I was never referred to as the panhandle bridge.

The last picture is the old K&I.
