Description 

This very old, lightly built bridge lasted as a working structure well into the 1970's. Due to its light construction and age-related deterioration, it was load-limited to about 5 tons. It was scrapped and replaced in the late 1970's with a bland concrete eyesore.

I took this photograph in 1976 while passing through the area.
