      Allen:
      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?
