Thanks Luke for sharing this photo from my blog post. This image appeared in the Tennessean on July 4, 1909. It is a photo of the Woodland Street Bridge. In the background you can see the railroad bridge. Although the newspaper image is not very good you can see the tender's house on the railroad bridge. The caption on the image says, "Woodland-Street Bridge, L&N Railway Bridge Beyond." http://nashvillehistory.blogspot.com/2016/08/louisville-nash...
