My reason for playing catch up–my daughter who has two boy, 5 & 3, just gave birth to a little girl. We are so happy for her family. The boys even wanted a baby sister, but no one knew until the happy event.

Here is some information from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
The 556-foot-long (169 m) bridge, with stone masonry abutments and two stone masonry piers, with three Pratt-type pin-connected trusses, was built in 1894–1895 at a cost of $262,000 by Filbert Porter & Co. under the direction of Chief Engineer George Smedley Webster (1855–1931) of the Philadelphia Department of Public Works and James H. Windrim, director of the Department of Public Works. The bridge was designed as a double-decker bridge, but the upper deck was never built for lack of funds. The bridge carries two lanes of vehicular traffic on a 26-foot-wide (7.9 m) roadway, with 7-foot (2.1 m) sidewalks on either side, for a total width of 40 feet (12 m).
