Description 

NBI date of 1933 is incorrect. The bridge may have been relocated here or modified in some way at that time. A pinned Pratt with cresting on it's finials would likely be 1890's or older.

Tony - I guess my edit didn't take...I added that the bridge was bought used in 1933 from Erie County.

Although anything is possible, a pinned Pratt with cresting built in 1933 is highly improbable. My guess is that the bridge was either moved here at that time, or the substructure was otherwise manipulated.
