THE OLD RAILROAD BRIDGE AT FLORENCE, ALABAMA, and the River Crossing, By William Lindsey McDonald
The old railroad bridge at Florence, Alabama is more than a landmark.  It early became a symbol of the industry, commerce and transportation that boosted the city in growth and prosperity.  It bridged not only the Tennessee River, but served as the connecting link to the other areas of the greater Muscle Shoals and to the other cities in the central and southern parts of Alabama.
