Photo in question is indeed BH 95356, "Bridge Street (West)" also called "The Long Bridge" as it was the longest single-span bridge entirely within the state of Vermont north of Brattleboro.

The photo looks like it might go with this bridge: https://bridgehunter.com/vt/lamoille/bh95356/

Kind of confusing though because Bridge Street crosses the Lamoille River twice on the west side of Morrisville.

I'm not 100% sure about the location but it seemed like the most plausible option....historic aerials only go back to 1995 so no help there on this crossing.

This bridge doesn't match up with the description of the one that existed here until 2009, and definitely wasn't built in 1926. I'm guessing that the bridge pictured was somewhere "near" Morrisville.
