Seneca Street Bridge (Old)
Posted August 15, 2016, by Nathan Holth (nathan [at] historicbridges [dot] org)

FYI to people adding bridges... demolished/lost bridges apparantly don't show in the County Map option on BridgeHunter... makes it easy to add a duplicate bridge page. Anyway, I stumbled upon this unusual bridge was located while reviewing Sanborn Maps... I was looking for the shops of the Variety Iron Works which were where Carter and Scranton meet... it looks like some of the old buildings may survive today. Not a thing remains of this bridge however.
