For context, There was a racially biased comment made. It got pulled by James (Webmaster). Doing so makes us "dem evul liburulz", apparently.

I split those off into their own entry and requested those imaged be deleted a while ago...

If you also look at the page you linked, you'll also notice that you have to pay to use stock imagery to obtain licensing.

IMO both are needed, since "destroyed by ice" isn't an official status category (YET. It should be.)

Posted April 22, 2018

1936 atlas viewable on historicaerials.com confirms it is.

Then it's "Destroyed by flooding" with the "Destroyed by ice" subcategory added, not "preserved", as what's there now is new pedestrian construction, not what was there before being preserved.

Considering there's no "Photo added by" update, one can assume via context clues that Rachel was the original photographer.

The bridge width negates your claim that it was a former road bridge, though, just like how the machinery height and narrowness of a span negated the Lawrence, MA bridge as being a "railroad bascule".

This replaced a road bridge, and, quite frankly, whatever was there before is probably more interesting than this pseudo-suspension.

Despite it being blurry, if you compare the bridge width in the 1951 imagery to the bridge width in 1992 imagery, you can see that the current structure is far narrower than what was there in 1951 (Or even the slightly-clearer 1974 imagery.).

I mean, Royce and I spent the better part of the past week arguing, and he recommended me in his reply to you.

People can disagree and still be respectful.

It's hard to be respectful when one takes the disagreement far too personally, as you continually have.

We appreciate your contributions, but if you're gonna pull the "time and money" card, both Royce (From the DFW-area, travels all over photographing (Cue Johnny Cash).), Nathan (From Michigan; Runs his own bridge site.), and John (From the MSP-area; Travels around the Midwest, juggling this hobby AND his university studies.) have you beat.

RE: catagory
Posted April 21, 2018

IIRC the LCRA runs the Delaware-Lackawanna Railroad, which already has a category.

This is far too narrow to have been a vehicular bridge.

Historicaerials shows a much wider bridge here in previous years.

To tack a valid criticism onto that, "damaged by flooding" seems to be superfluous of "destroyed by flooding" IMHO.
