Aquedoctan Stone Bridge

The Aquedoctan stone bridge in the mid 1930’s. The bridge was built in 1932 of granite obtained from the John Swenson Granite quarry in Concord. The granite was installed by Joseph Comolli, a Concord granite contractor. Note the Victorian street lighting. The steel bridge to the Endicott Rock monument seen here was gone by 1938.
