Oliver Street Bridge

This historical photo of a bridge being moved with logs under it in 1896 is one of my favorites. However I disagree with the 1859 date. Looks like an 1870s King to me. My guess is there was an additional bridge between 1859 and when this bowstring was built that was missed by whoever did the research.
