Bartow Jones Bridge

Tom Hoffman, I think the old bridge's name was the "Shadle Bridge". There are some pics on the Internet, & it was a cantilever truss.

I have some idea that the previous bridge here may have been an older cantaliever truss. Does anybody have any info regarding the history of this former bridge?
