I believe this is the same bridge with the bowstring span that preceded the two ponies.

South Main Street Bridge
Posted July 4, 2016, by ArtS (asuckewer [at] knite [dot] com)

I'm not sure that the new (first) picture is the same crossing but, if it is, the four pictures show a progression of three configurations. It would be neat to find an all bowstring version showing the span that was replaced by the Columbia Bridge Works Pratt!

Also, if all of the images are of the same crossing, when should the site do a new entry? My concern with breaking this into three is that it would actually be less coherent than if its kept together.

Regards,
