CN - Menominee River Bridge (Wisconsin)
Marinette is on the left bank; the other end of the bridge is on an island, locally known as "Bum Island". During the depression of the 1930's, the uninhabited island became the local hobo camp.

Simple steel girders on alternating cut limestone and poured concrete piers. The limestone piers appear to have been cut away to fit the current steel girders. I surmise there was originally a truss bridge on the limestone piers; later, concrete piers were added between the stone piers and the trusses were replaced with shorter girder spans of heavier capacity.
