STOCKTON MI Co'; some Ns reversed. Wrought-iron with cast-iron
approach railings and wood deck. 2 iron trestles support beams

lattice, with thin wrought-iron lamp holders at ends. Lower
girders of parapets descend towards ends and are set in ground
below deck level. 5 flat-section rails attached between
crossed and upright members of lattice. Approaches have fluted
cast-iron posts with domed finials; smaller posts riveted to
descending upper rail of parapet. 3 round wrought-iron rails

This bridge was constructed for the mill workers of the nearby
mills, and it allowed access, on foot, from across the river
