Definitely older...I would assume that 1954 is a relocation date. I'm inclined to think that this is a circa 1890's Groton Bridge Co. production, as the pins and use of Battens in the upper chord conforms with their standards (although the verticals are much more built up then other extant examples). Nice find!

James thanks for locating, believe this bridge to be older than 1954 and probably relocated here. Nice find!
