Another Griggs save! Very cool!!
Tony that is correct, it is one of two such surviving structures. Jim Stewart provides the following history:
Mill Road Bridge (c1860). Another Whipple cast & wrought iron pony Pratt truss moved from Parrish, NY, to Central Park, Schenectady, NY, Squire Whipple, engineer. After the bridge had collapsed into a creek under the load of a snowplow, the county salvaged the parts and stored them in their garage. Professor Francis Griggs and a group of Union College civil engineering students rehabilitated and re-erected the bridge in Central Park c1987.
Am I crazy or does this look like a Whipple design Queenpost pony?
This one looks interesting, but I can't find any documentation on it besides the HAER photos. Anyone have any thoughts?
