Main Street Bridge (Olcott Beach)
Photo taken by Mike Niethe
BH Photo #352640
This bridge carried Main Street Olcott Beach over 18 Mile Creek. It was removed many years ago.
The photos I attached are from postcards that I own. These postcards are postmarked 1907.
There are a number of common postcard views of this bridge although I think these are the best.
