Manchester Mills & Pontoon Bridges

I don’t know about you, but I think I prefer the Mayo Bridge thank you very much.

I wouldn’t be enthusiastic about trying to cross this James River pontoon bridge with a team of horses and a heavy load on a rough day.

I wonder how much the toll was from the toll booth collector.
