I'm still looking!
Nice finds Melissa, now we need a good photo!
It's certainly not uncommon to see a firm "Jazz-up" some of their larger city spans... especially if it's a hometown gig. Indiana Bridge Company normally built very utilitarian spans but turned out a couple with beautiful portals in Muncie. I for one look forward to seeing what else you come up with!
Apparently the holder of this relic thinks they have the lone survivor!
Print a color copy and laminate it!
BTW, when I first saw it, I thought that thing was a wooden plank or equivalent not a bookmark (or ledger marker). That bookmark is pretty tiny.
Oh, you haven't seen anything yet, the Morrison family was much more creative and diverse in their decoration and structures than any of us guessed.
Discovering stuff like this is the beauty of uncovering lost history!
Great find Art... But I'm with you on the crazy price!
The verticals with spacers are uniquely CBW, but those trio of finials are like nothing I've seen on another bridge!
