State Street Bridge (Older)
Posted November 13, 2018, by Dennis Tully (dtully [at] wi [dot] rr [dot] com)

After some research about the bridge photo shown here:

https://bridgehunter.com/wi/racine/bh73379/

I believe that the bridge in the photo is not the "State Street Bridge" but it is the "Main Street Bridge" that was built in Racine in 1906 which agrees with various newspaper articles that I have. That 1906 Main Street Bridge was replaced in 1928.

The 1928 Main Street Bridge was replaced with this:
