Carrabasset River - Kingfield, Maine, USA

Photograph, collection of David Denenberg. This is a neat postcard of the no-longer-extant suspension bridge across the Carrabasset River at Kingfield, Maine. This location is close to the New Portland Wire Bridge. The Kingfield bridge bears resemblance to the New Portland bridge, but is believed to predate the surviving New Portland span by more than ten years. The sign reads:

THREE DOLLARS FINE FOR RIDING OR DRIVING ON THIS BRIDGE FASTER THAN A WALK
