On HA, the oldest available view is from 1953.

On that view, there's the railroad bridge.

To its right, is clearly THIS bridge's successor (Bay Shore Road Bridge).

To its left, are remains of piers. Those could, possibly, be from THIS bridge.

there are also piers of another possible bridge next to the railroad bridge
