Yeah I agree!

Only three more years until I'm able to travel here to do more photographing. I sure hope this bridge doesn't get scheduled for demolition before I photograph it.

"This bridge needs more than just one photo."

Just a thought, but maybe Sheldon was saying he likes this bridge, and thinks it should have more photos.

Do you agree, Sheldon?

I wonder if this bridge's build date is actually a relocation date? The bridge's construction appears to be more from the late 1910's or very early 1920's. Bridges from 1948 usually have rolled I-beams for members, with very little of them being built-up. Just a thought...Sheldon, perfect opportunity for you to don a camera and see if it has a builder's plaque or any way to identify the original build year. It looks like the bridge is in your neck of the woods!

As soon as you learn how to post historic bridges, Sheldon, THEN you can criticize other's work.
