Nathan-

The two photos on this page appear to depict two different generations of bridges, with the bridge in the second photo being the predecessor to the span in the first. Could you please move Photo #1 to its page at https://bridgehunter.com/oh/defiance/bh94693/?

Thanks,

Paul

I would assume this bridge also may have been built in 1917, when much of the grade separation in Defiance was constructed.

This bridge spans the Auglaize River not the Maumee. I have taken several pictures of this bridge.
