Clinton Street Bridge
Posted April 22, 2015, by Luke

The railroad bridge is of a different design (Pratt) than Clinton Street (Looks like a Whipple.)

This image shows the Clinton Street Bridge better, and it's the same design as shown in the postcard: https://server16007.contentdm.oclc.org/cdm4/item_viewer.php?...

This is not the Clinton street bridge, it is the rail road bridge (abandoned) west of it 2 or 3 blocks. Note the train cars in your picture on a "street" bridge???
