Three Bridges over the Green River

In the late 18th century a ferry and a wooden bridge were the means of transport at this site between Deerfield and Greenfield, Massachusetts, over the Green River. By the early years of the 20th century, as shown in this photograph, three bridges connected the two towns: one, a covered wooden bridge, for foot traffic, carriages, and the small number of motor vehicles; another for the electric railway or trolley; and the third for the railroad.
