Description 

This is from a real photo postcard dated June 27, 1908, postmarked at Stanberry, MO. I suspect this is Wildcat Creek based on analysis of the creek / bend in the image and modern Google Earth images. Likely was present day N High Street or near present day Hwy 136 stream crossing. Still this is just a guess. What a great picture of a bridge built well before 1900; and with the ladies on the bridge this is likely a one of a kind personal post card. This image is from my personal collection.
