81Re: Bear River Bridge
- Apr 4, 2001Allen:
I have a article on the Bear River bridge from March 11, 1909 issue of
the of Engineering News. It has constructions views and drawings. I could
scan it and e-mail to you. It's probably 11 x 14 in size, scanner 8 1/2 x
11, so it would take two scans per page. Does that help?
