Details

This is the Steel Bridge in Albany, built in 1893 by King Bridge Co. and Franklin J. Miller, and demolished after the Ellsworth Street Bridge opened in 1926. It held up pretty well for such a feathery design.

At the time it was built, it was the longest steel bridge in Oregon. While it was replaced in 1926, the large round steel supports are still standing, and now hold up power lines.
