Notes
  • Nancy Fraser writes: "The pedestrian suspension bridge [was] located at Island Garden Amusement Park in Lewiston, Maine. It started at the water gate house that you can see and led to an island over the water falls where they had entertainment. It was in existence in Lewiston from 1891 to 1903. It was later sold to Amos Gerald of Fairfield, Maine to be used for the trolley line leading to Casco Castle and Amusement Park in South Freeport, Maine."
  • Moved to (footbridge) - South Freeport, Maine, USA.
