Bog River Bridge
Posted August 4, 2009, by Raymond Smith (llarchives [at] frontiernet [dot] net)

I have just received 16 original photos showing the construction of this bridge. The photos came from James Ovitt the builder of the bridge.

The note along with the photos says, "The bridge was build in the 1920's. A previous contractor had gone broke on the job before it was taken over by James Ovitt. He was able to make full size drawings of the stones to form the arches."

I have scanned these photos and can make them available if anyone is interested.
