description:

Douglass' description written on envelope reads, in full: "Historical | Covered bridge over Beanblossom Creek. | Honey - Creek road north of | Bloomington"

According to Jeremy Ray Boshears in a February 1, 2017 e-mail to IU Archives Curator of Photograhs, Brad Cook: "This is the North end of the Church Bridge. This one is hard to put a date on as this is the only photo I have ever found of the North end in my 6 years of searching. I identified this as the North End because the top of the portal has square corners and the South portal has angles at the top."

For a map showing the location of this bridge see image P0024048.
