Quittapahilla Creek Bridge
Posted April 6, 2022, by Stewart Edwin Beitler (stubear0430 [at] gmail [dot] com)

I believe the bridge shown on the postcard is in a different location. I studied Annville historic articles and photos and believe this bridge was where Queen Street ends (now) at the Quittapahilla Creek ... on google earth you can see the Mill sticking out of the trees on the aerial .. and you can see where Queen Street would have gone past the mill and over the creek. I believe the dirt at the bottom of the postcard would be Mt. Pleasant Road. I wanted to run this past you .. I have two postcards which show a different old bridge on Rt. 934 and they are not like this one ... they are stone arch bridges .. please let me know what you opinion is ... thanks Stewart Edwin Beitler
