The views I attached are from a postcard that is postmarked 1907.
This is a common postcard.
This bridge spanned the Erie Canal west of the lift locks at Lockport.
I was told that this bridge was later replaced by the "Summit Street" bridge.
I remember the Summit Street bridge. It was demolished a few years ago and was replaced by the present Route 93 (Lockport Bypass) bridge
although the present bridge is a couple hundred yards west of the old Summit Street bridge.
