Bridges at Orleans

The Upper Bridge

The above pictures are of the foot bridge that replaced the lower bridge
My sister Peg and someone else is on the bridge

The rail road trestle was torn down shortly after this photo along with the demise of the line to Sodus Point

This was the trestle when still in use, a much older view.

Foot Bridge

Upper Bridge on top of old bridge. Both are gone now
I'm not sure what the significance of the 1913 is. The old bridge was
around long before that. Perhapse the top layer was built around that time.
This is the original upper bridge  when the road made an abrupt  right turn
at the eastern end and then you can see that it made a hairpin turn  to switch back
toward the four corners where the Warner farm sat. When the bridge was built on top
of this one the road was raised and rerouted strait up the hill.

The old lower bridge, later replaced by foot bridge when the road
was rerouted.
