Where Is This?

Does anyone know where these two bridges are? The large bridge appears to be made of concrete and should still be standing. The smaller steel truss bridge may have been for pedestrian use. The photo is from the 1920's.

Thanks to Mike for identifying the large concrete bridge as the Big Four Bridge in Sidney, Ohio. The bridge opened in 1924 and spans the Great Miami River as well as Main Avenue. Further research indicates that the smaller truss bridge is the Gearhart Road Bridge. The large bridge is still used by the railroad but the small bridge is closed to all traffic.

This is the concrete railroad bridge built in 1923 over the Great Miami River in Sidney, Ohio. It is known, appropriately enough, as the "Big Four Bridge". It still stands today and recent photos and a location map can be found here.
