This is true. This bridge was blown up in 1974 as part of the shooting of "Earthquake" (Mark Robson, 1974), but finally they didn't use it in the movie.
I hope this footage will appear in a bluray special edition or something similar.
Supposedly this bridge was blown up in 1974 as part of the making of a movie called "Earthquake".
OK, we can make the original page the Whipple page and convert the page I created to the Pratt replacement. Apologies for the mix-up...in trying to sort out the two bridges on the same page I wrongly assumed this page was for the bridge on the postcard.
That entry was based around the same stereoview when Dave King added it. Someone adding the wrong postcard doesn't change that.
They look like different bridges to me. One's a four-span riveted Pratt, while the one in the 1895 stereoview is a six-span Whipple with pinned connections.

Looks like this might possibly be a Phoenix column bridge?
