This is such a neat bridge to be open on a walking/biking path! Its in great shape for its age. Such awesome views from the deck of this bridge! Its actually two bridges in one with two spans being rebuilt after the 1913 flood and one original. That postcard shows the original span still in place after the flood. I would like to know when that span (original bridge I assume) was built. It is hard to imagine water so high that it would take out this bridge!
