In the late 18th century, a ferry and a wooden bridge were the means of transport at this site between Deerfield and Greenfield, Massachusetts. By the early 20th century, transportation means had expanded and three bridges connected the two towns. A covered wooden bridge was for foot traffic, carriages, and the small number of motor vehicles; a second was for the electric railway or trolley; and the third was for the railroad. The bridges seen in this postcard actually spanned the Deerfield River; not the Green River as indicated in the postcard heading.
