Agreed Nathan, that was actually my first conclusion. It looks like Canton might also have used this style of railing though, hence my guess:

Not a lot of detail in the photo, but the railing looks like Berlin Iron Bridge's design.

That looks like a Canton Bridge Co. design to me. It would fit for the area
