According to http://phorum.dallashistory.org/read.php?2,92080,92088, a through truss, and based on https://books.google.com/books?id=zo5MAAAAYAAJ&pg=PA414&dq=M..., built 1923.
The approximate coordinates of the NTTC bridge over the original Mountain Creek channel are: 32.746831, -96.926902. Road construction and flooding has resulted in the formation of relief channels in the area.
From Dallas the NTTC ran along the median of Jefferson Blvd to the western city limits. After the NTTC ceased operations Jefferson Blvd was extended westward along the abandoned NTTC right of way to the city of Grand Prairie. The dump through the bottoms was about 20 feet high. The postcard view may be this location.
The 1942 newspaper photo is of the Jefferson Blvd bridge which was built to replace the NTTC bridge. Best guess was originally a steel truss or girder but I do not have a photo or details.
M.C., do you know the GPS coords for the actual bridge over Mountain Creek?
Apparently this bridge is going to become a Texas landmark, albeit with the unfortunate misnomer of being named for a stream well to the west that was crossed by a truss, according to http://phorum.dallashistory.org/read.php?2,92080,92088
