This bridge was updated with steel piers on limestone bases, between the original piers. Look at the engravings.

I beg to differ with the information in this article. I have a Scientific America (April 1884) and it has an article on this bridge. Built, I would imagine, around 1884 by Clarke,Reeves&Co, Phoenixville PA Bridgeworks.
