ST - Saginaw River Bridge
Posted December 24, 2021, by Naisaga (randomerest1spam [at] gmail [dot] com)

The location of this bridge seems to be an odd one. Older maps of Ojibway island show it being a few islands rather than one single island. That and combined with all the maps of Saginaw I've been looking through show no railroad bridge over Ojibway island.

There is however a map from 1937 that shows a second railroad bridge next to Thompson street.

I've tried clicking the link to image source site, but when I get there it's just a blank page with no text or images or working links.

Site with the 1937 map:
