I split out Susan's Delaware River bridge image and added it to a newly created entry. I also split out and uploaded Susan's picture of Byram Bridge and uploaded it. Anyone know which bridge is shown in the third image? It may be Byram Bridge but I'm not yet certain.

The picture label "Mrs. Brady" was not taken on this bridge. It was taken on the Point Pleasant, PA-Point Pleasant, NJ bridge. That bridge does not have a listing that I have found on this site. It was a truss bridge that was washed away in the flood of 1955, and not replaced.

I just found a picture of my grandmother standing on this bridge from around 1930,
