This is a used post card from Elk Cal. 1912 Another view of the North Fork Bridge. An interesting side note, in 2001, I worked on a new home built overlooking the town of Elk. the house was build on the old rail yard of the Elk Creek Railway, 1/2 mile north of the left end of this bridge. First day I was on the job site , I parked my truck and tripped on a brakeman's key when I got out! Still have it.
