This bridge is a small concrete arch bridge with a stone facing which makes it look like a stone arch bridge. This technique of disguising concrete arch bridges as stone arch bridges was occasionally employed in the earliest years (1900-1920) of the use of concrete in bridge construction, as it took a number of years for both designers and the general public to accept the visual qualities of concrete in bridges and this was a way hide the appearance of concrete. Stone facades continued to be used in a limited number of concrete bridges into the 1920s and 1930s, often for bridges in park settings, like this bridge.
