Title

Walnut Street Bridge

Description

From the annotated description reads: "Print showing the Perry Knitting Mill taken by the new metal bridge on Walnut Street, made from an original glass plate, probably about 1910." The iron span was constructed in 1902 by the Owego Bridge Company, rated for a load of four tons. By 1971 it was closed due to concerns over the deteriorating condition of both the bridge and a 210 ft. smoke stack nearby, which had tilted a foot out of plumb. The chimney was razed in 1973 and a new bridge completed early in 1974.
