I thought that this looked like a Columbia Bridge Works product...

This location is the same as the Baker Bridge which shows a '50s build but looks '20s. This photo may have been the predecessor.

The other location (BH 52684) doesn't appear to have had a bridge prior to the new alignment going through ca. 1969, so there probably was not a bridge like the one in the photo at that location.

Clark, they are different crossings but the same picture. The question is: which crossing does the picture go with?

I'm not sure if the picture goes at this crossing - there are three in town. However, this crossing still has a Pratt through truss on it.
