This picture was taken from a vantage point that would put it just off the right edge of the previous picture. The same objects are present in the foreground and background.
In addition, the legend on the picture clearly states this is the Highway 71 route between the lakes, looking generally southwest. It is a habit of road constructors to put these barriers at the sides of bridges as they cross over water, but the difference in safety provided the barrier relative to the road immediately before and after is such as to make the barrier almost comical.
This card likely dates from the 1940s.
