Covered bridge

P0055318

description:

Douglass' description written on envelope reads, in full: "Covered bridge"

When this image is blown up it is possible to at least read portions of the political campaign signs. Investigation of these names may help us to more accurately date the image as well as the location of the covered bridge. Names and offices the person is running for appear to be:

1) East for Auditor. First name might be William.

2) Presley for Treasurer.

3) Probably Hanson for Treasurer.

4) Probably Bruner (but could be "Baruner" or "Biruner" or some other variant) for Sheriff.
