The description states:

MISSISSIPPI RIVER BRIDGE, VICKSBURG, MISSISSIPPI

Looking down on one of the many barges daily plying the Mighty Mississippi, the bridge at Vicksburg offers a crossing for both trains and autos.

–The bridge was built in 1930 to carry both autos and trains, but was converted to train operation only in 1998 when a modern highway bridge was built nearby.

The image likely dates from the 1950s.
