College Creek up by the dam in the arboretum.

The Squaw "swim" was a $20 dare.

Art, according to https://books.google.com/books?id=t1dFAQAAMAAJ&pg=PA101&dq=l...

a company from Birmingham CT made the frame and a company from Trenton NJ made the tension rods.

Any guesses?

I've waded/swam in both College and Squaw Creeks.

Made money off the latter. :')

Don't cut yourself on all that edge, kiddo.

Given the fact that imagery from 1905 shows no bridge at Park Road, I'm going to categorize this one as a mystery bridge.

Aforementioned imagery: https://books.google.com/books?id=5xBjpPdExPIC&pg=PT100&dq=C...

There are several bridges in the region this imagery could be of, such as the old iterations of the Butler or Dupont bridges.

David, your postcard is of the road bridge at Portage: https://bridgehunter.com/wi/columbia/bh81626/

Looks like a railroad bridge in the background.

I have no doubts about the bridge being relocated here 1999.

Several tracks have relocated bridges. Most notably Lime Rock Park's ingress/egress Bailey truss and the former Bridgehampton Race Circuit's still-extant Chevron ingress/egress Bailey bridge.

Forgot to comment Nice Find, JP!

This track was also named Continental Divide (After initially being called Mountain View Motorsports Park). It was at one point owned by the owner of the Utah Jazz NBA team before he abandoned this track for one near Salt Lake City.
