Mill Street Bridge
A Proper Queen
Verticals in a queenpost are tension members only, so round iron rods were used.

"The 3-panel pin-connected queen post pony truss bridge is supported on random ashlar abutments with wingwalls. Rod stock is used for
all members except the top chords and end posts, which are built-up. Loop forged eye bar members are joined at the lower panel point by
a single pin which also holds the floor beam U hanger. The well preserved, hybrid span is technologically distinguished, and it is also a contributing element to a potential historic district."
