Description 

The iron work is designed to give the appearance of a continuous truss for the entire length, but a double post over the piers simplifies the strains. The floor system is continuous from end to end of the bridge, the panel length being so arranged as to conform to the distance between piers. It was put in service May 15. - Railroad Gazette (link below)
