A few weeks ago I showed pictures of the railway bridge that went over the Credit River where I live in Georgetown. I have always thought it was a grand bridge due to the height and the wonderful valley seen from the train below. The photos I showed were interesting as they seemed to be examining the structure and I thought it was in need of repairs. I became curious as to when this bridge came into existence and what kind of repairs were needed. I was surprised to find out this structure was built in 1904! It is 104 years old!
