Prolific birdseye artist Oakley H. Bailey's depiction of Mystic [gmap], Connecticut.

The image is centered on the Mystic River bridge. The bridge, highlighted as it is, must be significant in some way. Something about it looks different. I researched it a bit and found that there's a rather interesting bridge in Mystic, but this one wasn't built until 1920... 30 years after Bailey made this image.
