Covered Bridges of Illinois -
Manufacturer: Thelma Eaton
Covered Bridges of Illinois

This copiously illustrated volume includes not only descriptions and history of all of the state's known covered bridges–both past and present–but also general discussions of structural techniques and enough history of Illinois roads and bridges to provide background necessary for understanding the history of the covered bridges. There are many drawings and maps, a list of all toll bridges authorized by the state between 1818 and 1867, a list of free bridges authorized by the state legislature in the years 1831-1843, a list (by county) of all known covered bridges, a selected bibliography, and a good index. The photographs are excellent.
