The cement bridge was built in or around 1905. Single pour on abutments of stone. The lady with the dog, facing the camera is  Mary McCutcheon.  Great Grandmother of Errol Reid who provided the photo. The barn behind is on the McCutcheon farm, which, as you see, is cleared. Today (2014) a healthy growth of trees has reclaimed the land.   Bill Terry took the hay off every summer, using his team & mower.  Errol says that her Dad drove golf balls down the fields afterwards!

Errol also indicated that there was a wooden bridge before the cement bridge and is looking for photos of that as well.

Thank you so much for sharing this Errol.
