Erie - Chemung River Bridge
Posted July 28, 2021, by Tony Dillon (spansaver [at] hotmail [dot] com)

I believe the bridge in the second photo can be seen in the background of the first one. I also suspect that the first postcard is mislabeled, as this appears to be a lightweight Baltimore truss built for buggies and not trains. Owego Bridge Company built a good number of these in New York.
