Clark, that is an interesting point about the beams... my feeling (without having visited the bridge) is that the curved beams would be structural, like most curved t-beams, but what is in question is whether the interior beams are also curved, or if they are straight. I have seen both scenarios in other situations (fasica beams only curved and all beams curved).

This bridge was not looked at in the historic bridge inventory so I don't have any photos to share from that.

Very unusual to have brick paving post WW2. It looks as if they took some trouble to make this bridge visually appealing. I wonder if the arches on the beams were structural or if they were part of an aesthetic design.

In case anyone is curious why I added this bridge, it is an early example of a curved t-beam, and also it retains an exposed brick deck as well, which is rare.
