Riverton-Belvidere Bridge (1904)
Posted December 6, 2021, by Art S. (Asuckewer [at] knite [dot] com)

Christopher,

This bridge does not have Phoenix Columns nor was it made by Phoenix Bridge Co. As I'm not sure what you had in mind I'll leave the corrections to you.

The only association with Phoenix I'm aware of are some rolling marks.

I look forward to your additional input.

Sincerely,

Art S.
