Marietta Road Bridge
Posted September 29, 2010, by Patrick Sullivan (psullivan [at] newsouthassoc [dot] com)

This bridge was erected by the Georgia Railway and Electric Company as part of its Cooper St-Inman Yards streetcar line. The structure was most likely erected when the line was extended for workers of the Inman Yards c. 1905.
