    Looking for a picture of the Johnson Ferry wooden bridge over the Chattahoochee
    river on Johnson Ferry Rd. Atlanta, Georgia. It existed up to and beyond 1964.

    If you can help, let me know.

    Ragbrai 2013 took us over some beautiful bridges. One in particular was green steel on (probably 100) concrete pillars. I have a photo but can’t attach in this forum. It has what appears to be a # 50 sign on it (Route, highway, marker). Can you help?

    I’ve seen a picture of a bridge, I believe it is in PA. A plaque states “this bridge was rebuilt by the Tustin Merchantile Company” maybe after the war in 1776, I think the plaque was placed in 1976. Any information will be most appreciated.
    Thank You, Sandy
