As far as I know, there were only two iron bridges in Itawamba County: the one that still exists across Ironwood Bluff and the earlier one built across the Tombigbee River at Fulton which was torn down and replaced with a concrete bridge until the waterway came through. Can someone correct me if I am wrong about this? I've compared the bridge in the photo above against photos I have of the iron bridge at Ironwood Bluff, and the bridges do not appear to be a match. Could this picture be of the old iron bridge that crossed the river just west of Fulton?
