OK - I like CR 27 Deans Mill Road east of Oak Hill as the most likely. There is no street view but the same red farm building is visible from the air. That bridge was replaced in 1972.

The tell would be if a structure on the other side matches the one in the postcard.

The one that's at this location now isn't the one in the postcard, correct. The postcard, if it's for this location, would be for the one that was replaced in 2017.

Further, both this location AND the one on the other side of 87 (as it turns out) have Warren ponies now. It's just that that one has been there longer than this one has been here.

Mike and Patrick- Thanks for the responses. My postcard is definitely not the Cauterskill Road Bridge BH26115.

Mike,

I think this is the bridge you are seeing off I87. It is a Warren Truss, not the one in the postcard, I think.

Geoff,

I'm placing my bet on the postcard matching this location.

Here's another, distant view, from nearby I-87. It SHOULD show you an October 2016 image - let me know if it doesn't.

This bridge was replaced with a new truss in summer 2017.
