That's the trestle the carried the concrete trains across the river, shown
in photo three. If you look at photo 5, you can see the derrick crane and
the winch house on the cribbing inside the cofferdam, so you can get a point
of reference. You are right, the view is looking downstream in photo 6, at
that trestle, which based on the other pictures, must have been not too far
upstream from where the Little River comes in there at the limestone quarry.
