The bridge in the street view is the NE most of the four. The pointer on the map indicates the location of the SW most of the four.

Hi, my grandfather, O.O. Fuller, died just 2 yrs. before I was born, he was the contractor on this historic bridge! I was excited to find this on the Internet today. His daughter & my mother, Mary Lou [Fuller] Carras, is still living in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

Just a little trivia - FYI.
