Hmm, you're right. I was questioning whether to list it as eyebar or not, I'll revert it to "suspension".

It might have been a wire cable suspension bridge. I cant find any info, but it was described as a "swinging" bridge. I envision something with wire cables. Often, the anchorages of wire cable suspension bridges are eyebars. Thus, the presence of eyebars in the anchorages does not guarantee the rest of the bridge was eyebar chains.
