The postcard photo presented here does not show the Clinton Street Bridge. Though it is a similar design, the postcard shows the bridge which stood from 1938 to 1991 on Second Street over the Auglaize River, which was known as the Fort Winchester Bridge. The Clinton Street crossing was known as the Fort Defiance Bridge.
