Route 11 Bridge
Posted August 17, 2021, by Tony Dillon (spansaver [at] hotmail [dot] com)

The building in both photos does match, so I would agree that the second photo depicts an earlier bridge. The polygonal pony was most likely built by the state highway department, possibly when Main St. first became a state route.

That being said it should have a seperate page instead of being added to this one.
