One lane bridge over Wilson River


One lane bridge over Wilson River


Black and white image of a truss bridge over the Wilson River. A dirt road leads to the bridge and proceeds out of the frame behind it. Heavy brush and trees fill the background of the image. One man stands on the bridge while another sits on the railing of the approach. Both men hold what appear to be rifles. Museum records do not identify the men on the bridge, but this image is one of a number of glass negative plates donated by Thomas Clapshaw.
