Hotel Schanno Bridge
Posted April 1, 2016, by ArtS (asuckewer [at] knite [dot] com)

Dawn,

Out of curiosity, why do you think it is made by Phoenix? The nearby Dingman's Ferry Bridge is made using Phoenix Columns but this one is not. That doesn't mean it wasn't made by Phoenix, so I'm just curious if you have info that you can share.
