I had heard the name... But never see it on a bridge.

Mr. Scullin kinda looked like Wilford Brimley!

Scullin is a very rare brand on bridge steel, I've only seen it a few times.

Scullin Steel...that seems to be a somewhat rare brand, unless someone else can remember seeing a large number of their works.
