Steam crane works on skeleton of new iron bridge, Strong, ca. 1922

Item 68684 info
Strong Historical Society

Supported by temporary vertical poles beneath, the structural skeleton of the iron bridge stretches between the abutments on the banks of the Sandy River in Strong. The steam crane was used to lift structural members into position for the iron workers to attach them. Temporary planking provided a way for workers to cross from end to end, eliminating the need for the walk bridge beneath.
