This is a photograph of the Clarkton Bridge that crosses the Staunton River Bridge. The bridge was built in 1902 and connected Halifax County, VA with Charlotte County, VA. On the back of this photo is the name Percy Haley. Percy (1890-1959) was the son of Will and Clara Haley. I'm not sure if the young man leaning on the railing of the bridge is actually Percy or not.
Here is a close-up.
Cousins - does anyone know?
Today the bridge is open to foot traffic only. You can read more about this bridge here and see current photos of the bridge here.
