Old photos of a railroad bridge and an auto bridge across a rver are in a collection of Thompson family items.
Does anyone know the location?
It is possibly near Spartanburg, S.C. Sam Hall of Chattanoogahistory.com (previously Deep Zoom Chattanooga) noticed some clues when he scanned the photos.
He said, "There’s a sign in one for 'Ballenger’s Pain Store' in Spartanburg, S.C. The river/bridges don’t match the terrain though.
"The auto appears to be an early model due to the location of the steering wheel."
Chattanoogan Frederick N. Thompson was a paving contractor who did a lot of work in South Carolina.
