Cambridge Railroad Bridge Postcard on the Web

The Penny Postcards site, a USGenWeb Archives Web Site, includes a postcard of the Chicago Milwaukee & St Paul bridge near Cambridge as one of the postcards from Story County.  Thank you to Roxane Sesker for alerting us to this.  We have  the same picture in our book, Cambridge, Iowa The First 150 Years, on page 21.  It identifies the bridge as the first river crossing and then shows pictures of the double track "High Bridge" which replaced it.

Penny Postcards from Iowa, part of the site, has links to the postcards by county.  Then within the counties many are arranged by town.
