The base of the Nicholson, Pennsylvania railroad bridge at the stream. The bridge stands 240 feet above the creek bed and is made of concrete. Started in 1851, it was completed by 1912. Designed to carry coal for the Lackawanna Railway system, it is still in function today. This photograph, taken in winter, is bleaker than most and doesn’t show the usual Pennsylvania floral and fauna. But you can see the snow-tipped weeds and grasses that lie underneath this massive structure.
