I'll post this in the Chronicles under Mystery Bridge to see if others can solve the riddle, adding the other bridge at Reed's Ferry to go along with that. Thanks for posting.

Looks like a baby swing span to me.

I don't normally mess with posting old, long-lost bridges, but this was one weird bridge. May have been a tiny swing bridge. A larger example, clearly a swing bridge was at "Reed's Ferry" but I don't know where that was. See attached photo.
