Des Moines River Bridge

We have had a lot of discussion about this postcard. There is general disagreement on just what bridge this is. We know it is not the Central Avenue bridge but there has been discussion about it being the 4th Street bridge over the Des Moines River as well as the Highway 4 bridge. We both remember the old Highway 4 bridge South of town looking like this but some think that the terrian does not look right for this location. Can you help us out? If so send us e-mail and we will post your opinions here.
