Hello there, love this old bridge in b&w, what is the box with the pipe there please? Regards ITB
Thanks for the compliment & great question ITB!
It's a water level measuring gauge. The pipe covers the instrument as it goes down into the stream. The box at the top at one time housed the circular recording graph, but now houses telemetry devices used to record any sudden rise in the stream level in the case of flash flooding.
Very neat bridge. Nice photo. YSL. Best wishes, Dave.
