Railroad Bridge

I'm a great fan of trains and railroads and was lucky enough to see a number of steam locomotives in operation when I traveled to China in 1985. I was curious about this photo scanned from a glass plate negative.  Sadly the title has been obscured.

The New Ipswich Library will be sponsoring a train talk with Dale Russell, a historian with a collection of over 14,000 photos. Details about the event can  be found on the Library Website.

Marcel Bernier has identified this photo as part of the Greenville Railroad Bridge built in 1907 after the wooden bridge burned in 1906.  Thank you for the information.

Railroad Bridge, Greenville, NH
