May have been relocated there in 35'.....but yes definitely older than that!

This bridge is definitely older than 1935--given the light construction and the use of pinned connections, probably 1900-1905 would be a more likely build date. Bob, don't feel too sad about the old bridge--it's still there, and that's more than we can say for most historic bridges that get replaced! ;>) Now, hopefully, it will be rehabbed for pedestrians sometime in the near future...
