Murray, Dougal & Co. is another interesting early bridge builder from the early days. Murray, Dougal & Co. was a railroad car builder that was one of thirteen companies merged to form American Car 7 Foundry in 1899.
They left the bridge building business when their factory burned down in 1880 and they never rebuilt the bridge shops. Two bridges are known to still stand. Interestingly, while I haven't done much research, my understanding is they made quite a few bridges but this is the first image of a lost Murray, Dougal & Co. bridge I've encountered.
Really interesting structure and spectacular decorative design!
