Neshanic Bridges

Here's a 1909 postcard view of the three bridges spanning the South Branch of the Raritan River. The Central Railroad of New Jersey bridge is in the foreground, followed by the Elm Street bridge, with the Lehigh Valley Railroad bridge in the distance.

Don't be confused by the postcard title.  This is not Three Bridges - which is the next village down the line - nor is it Neshanic.  It's Neshanic Station.  The village of Neshanic is centered around the Dutch Reformed Church on Amwell Road.
