That is a beauty indeed!

I have heard of this firm but don't know of any other spans remaining that are credited to them. Very fortunate that they saved this important piece of local history!

Found that this jewel of a bridge was NOT demolished but relocated. How many bridges built by this company are there? Is this the last?
