' i Norfolk bridge Norfolk bridge pictured in national historical magazine The wrought iron bridge spanning the Raquette River between Norwood and Norfolk; adjacent to the abandoned mill and hainlet of Yaleville, ispictured as oheramong a group of significant American bridges in the December issue of \American Heritage,\ the widely circulated and highly respected historical publication. . The article pictures and describes, for the most part, certain massive or historical bridges which have been significant in some way to engineering development. The Norfolk1>ridge;while' not individually distinguished in this way, ;is regarded as an outstanding, specimen of the wrought iron parabolic, truss, patented in 1878 and erected as a specialty of the Berlin Iron Bridge Co. of East Berlin, £onn. According_to_Jhe. article, the wrought iron, bridge had been generally superseded by steel and close to obsolescence when this span was built; in 1893, but the style remained popular for several decades both because of its gracefulness and the aggressiveness of tne company's salesmen. Although the Norfolk bridge is somewhat neglected in appearance it is generally well preserved and the article describes -it—as representing- an \arresting form.\ Itj stands ap- proximately upon the boundary of -Potsdam and JNprfol^jt''wnships. , ; r u Open A Brand Name Watches For Men And Women PRIME TIME TELLERS PRICED BUDGET-LOW Get here early.
