BHC Pic of the Week Nr. 151. Tribute to James Baughn

The 151st Pic of the Week James Baughn edition provides us with a riddle to this picture. This bridge was photographed by Mr. Baughn in 2015 and is known as Stuckey’s Bridge. It’s located in Lauderdale County in Mississippi and is a through truss bridge dating back to the time between 1885 and 1910.  

The question is what kind of truss bridge design is this? 

Look at the pic very carefully and feel free to pitch your answers in the comment section. The answer to come next week with a little history behind the truss design.

And the answer to last week’s Pic of the Week riddle (click here) you will find here. The bridge is located in Franklin County, Missouri and was the longest known work of Miller and Borcherding.
