Yes, you can certainly make it a blog. The three photos are the best we have.

Yes, it would appear that a truss bridge somewhere in the vicinity died before this slab was built...

Given the build date, this is an ingenious use of old parts when new stuff couldn't exactly be built due to the war effort.

This is most certainly a reuse of former bridge beams. Note the unused angle and empty rivet holes, and gaps in the lacing pattern near end of some beams. They are most likely vertical members from a truss bridge. The only mystery here is where they came from.

That is unusual. I can't see the lacing providing much benefit here, and it costs a significant amount.

I'd be very surprised if it was anything other than reuse.

Do you have any Pictures of them? It would be nice to see them here. I can also write a mystery Bridge article for my blog if you would like?

Hi, Have you seen the use of lattice stringers on a timber bridge before? Could they have been reused from a former structure?
