Lost/TP&W Bridge across Illinois River in Peoria, IL

(Bridge Hunter) (Update: it has happened, I have two postings for the same bridge. See also the older one.)

The 1922 photo was probably taken from the road bridge. TP&W is the railroad bridge on the right. McKinley Bridge is on the left and some of the pictures of that bridge have this bridge in the background.

[It appears the bridge was destroyed because ice took out the pier at the end of the swing span.]
