  • The "cables" of this bridge appear to have been steel plates riveted together. The deck is plate girder. Not surprisingly, recent photos of the bridge show it resting on two intermediate piers. AAJ describes the cables: "'laminated chains' made of flat iron plates, there being two such chains to a side, each of five plates riveted together."
