Linda Seccaspina On my group there were comments that it was a Bailey bridge – Wikipedia
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bailey_bridge
The Bailey bridge is a type of portable, pre-fabricated, truss bridge. It was developed by the British during World War II for military use and saw extensive use by British, Canadian and US military engineering units

This photo was taken on November 11, 1918 – Armistice Day! The girls are crossing Central Bridge, heading north and are carrying their schoolbooks! The girls are identified as Leita Andison , Annie ?, Flora Ormrod, and Bessie Harrod

Sandra Rattray Leita Andison was a wonderful woman and a great teacher and naturalist. She had a cottage beside my aunt Kay Foote at Squaw Point and she and her family enjoyed her sense of humour and her company.
