I just found your web site while looking up this bridge. I noticed that your Google map apparently shows its location at the site of the present Craig Bridge; however, the Ash-Consaul bridge was located a little bit further upstream, joining Ash Street (on the north bank of the Maumee) to Consaul Street (on the south bank).

I will be sure to visit here often!
