Attached is a picture of a Nickel Plate RR bridge over the Sandusky River near a little town called Old Fort, Ohio. Can anyone tell me when this bridge was built?

It was about 1924, when the Nickel Plate double tracked the road between Colby and Fostoria. The old roadbed is still evident both east and west of Old Fort.
