These interesting photos were taken by Perry Brumm's grandfather who helped to build this bridge, a long time fixture on the way from Lake Linden up the hill to Calumet. Perry relates: It was taken in August of 1968 and shows the C&H crane after lifting the first main beam in place. The beams were brought in to a rail siding up the hill from the bridge and hauled down the hill to be put in place. A few of the people that are seen in the picture are C&H employees that we hired shortly after the start of the strike.  For many years we thought the only train that crossed the bridge was one that my grandfather paid C&H to run across to check the gauge of the rails, it wasn't until I saw the photo of the C&H locomotive crossing in 1972, that I  realized that the bridge had been used twice. Thank you Perry for sharing your family photos with us.
