The photo on the left shows the railroad bridge that was built in 1887.  This photo apparently was taken before the railroad tracks were installed as the track bed leading up to the bridge is not completed.
The center photo was taken between the years 1894 and 1900, to learn more follow the link to
Steamer FALLIE.
The photo on the right is of the railroad bridge that opened in 1912.
