The vertical struts and upper lateral braces are solid, not laced. The end joint is pinned to the foot. The top chord and end posts are V-laced. None of the diagonals are ties, the are all built-up with battons. The deck is wide. The gussets are fairly big.

So - I would _guess_ 1930's to early 1940's. I would be shocked if it were actually built in 1972!

NBI gives 1974 build date. Does this look that modern?
