And WIBCo. and Keystone and Penn. and the Roeblings, with a Berlin with a minor fling with Variety 8-)

Uh oh...

Don't worry CBW will always be my first love. For atonement, I've reworked https://bridgehunter.com/oh/trumbull/south-main-street/ and added a more worthy pic.

Looks like an 1883-1885 Massillon product to me.

Neat photo! I had always wondered what the old bridge at Florida looked like. The portals are rather unusual and utilitarian looking.
