James Street - Susquehanna River Bridge (Pre 1972)
Posted March 28, 2022, by Paul Plassman

I believe the two construction photos I added today are of the James Street Bridge, despite the eBay listing referring to them as photos of a railroad bridge at Towanda (the only RR bridges near Towanda are through truss and girder). Feel free to correct me if I am wrong.
