My query is for Grand Forks, North Dakota. The Winamac Bridge Co., of Winamac, Indiana, put up a lot of bridges in the county.
John W. Frain and C. L. Bader were the salesmen in the region.
John Frain was a Civil Engineer and my Gr. Uncle.
Since one of the 1905 Winamac Bridges has survived and is being restored, I am searching for all I can find on them.
That includes pictures of the bridges put up in your area around 1907 according to newspaper items in the Winamac, Indiana papers.
Any help will be most appreciated.
Mr. Frain was manager of the Northwest Division, and also a dredger.
Thanks ahead of time.
