    Have no idea which Bridge this was from. They built many all over the place back in the days when the company was in existence.

      Maybe it's in this database:

      They do have three from 1889:

      Thanks for those links. Yeah, woulda been nice if a construction number was cast into the plate and a construction data base was still around. That would make it easy to i.d. the bridge. But, it is what it is.
