EIRR - St. Anthony Pegram Truss Bridge
Posted December 5, 2021, by Luke

Geoff, this bridge was imported from Weiser, (Page 8 of this NRHP form https://npgallery.nps.gov/AssetDetail/b56cc326-1d91-4ed0-8f3... ). I can't tell if the postcard matches topography of Weiser, here, or if it's another location entirely.

Regardless, awesome job finding another image of a Pegram. Even if it's one we already know about, more pictures of em' are better than having little-to-no pictures of em'.
