Bolts, on a bridge built in 1882?
Disaster at the second bridge--In February of 1922,a crew began dismantling the second railroad bridge. As the five workmen were loosening bolts, the entire western span gave way, crushing and killing two men and injuring two others. The job was abandoned until scrap prices rose in the pre-World War II period, when the job was finally finished.
