Old Girard Avenue Bridge and Pennsylvania Railroad Bridge, 1874

Girard Avenue at Schuylkill River, Philadelphia, Pa.

A two-car train crosses the bridge supported by at least four stone arches. The bridge in the foreground is made of iron. A paddlewheel boat is crossing under that bridge. The scene is viewed from the shore which shows a wide dirt road with a parallel dirt path(?). The many trees have their leaves.
