I'll see if I can dig anything up about the design features of this bridge. It appears to be a concrete encased arch/truss of some sort. It has Oregon's standard rail for that time so there may be something in the records. Great photo find Geoff!

Goeff: Wow, this is a great find! Note the diagonal members... extremely rare with bridges of this type. Compare this this: https://historicbridges.org/bridges/browser/?bridgebrowser=p...
