I'm leaning towards King on this one (mid to late 1880s if so) but there are a three other possibilities. Just not enough resolution in the image for me to confirm.

Pretty photo BTW.

Thanks, Melissa! It looks like all three of Wapakoneta's steel trusses survived until the 1960's--early 1970's but all were gone prior to 1975, if the Hamilton Road span indeed lasted until the current bridge in the NBI was constructed.
