Tony, I think it was an ad for the Bridge Company! I cropped most of it out. But it was very informative. Yes, I'll magically make the photo appear 😉
Great article written about the bridge... And it wasn't to say "Kiss it goodbye because it's being demoed!". Historic name of bridge given. Accurate build date and fabricator along with commissioners given. Even talks about the previous bridge and that it was built by the same firm!
This B.E. Kelley was my kind of writer!
P.S. Melissa... Please dig up a pic of the pre-1900 bridge that was here. Given the description I'm betting it was a 3-span version of one of those awesome Champion Bowstring pony trusses! Thanks in advance! ;-)
