Scott Misener: I was there on the S S J S Walton delivering many loads of iron ore loaded at Contracuer , PQ during that era. I recall it as a dismal place.

Search for "#19" (7 photos) and "central furnace, erie railroad lift" in RealStill. This post taught me about the RealStill web site.

The piers for the stationary part of the bridge still stand.
