Sulphur Avenue Bridge
Posted January 9, 2019, by Mark (openarchivestl [at] gmail [dot] com)

Anyone know what year the previous bridge was built in? I had initially mistaken this bridge as that depicted in the Sanborn maps from the early 20th century, but 1925 is way too late for the sanborn map date.
