I originally thought it was taken from the hill on Calcutta Smithferry. I got nowhere in that area so I eventually ended up down on Cannons Mills Road.
|This is close to the angle the 1895 photo was taken. Lots of trees now |
block the view.
There are two bridges relatively close to each other on this road and after exploring both, I was excited to find the remains of the old covered bridge! It is on both sides of this little creek where the orange bridge is today.
|The original bridge abutment for the covered bridge that once|
graced this road way.
Then I had to figure out what the angle was that the picture was taken. I think a road is now where that angle was. I ended up climbing the closest hill and took several shots from there.
