Historic Sites of Manitoba: Millford Railway Bridge (Municipality of Glenboro-South Cypress)

When this railway bridge was built in 1895, spanning the Souris River in what is now the Municipality of Glenboro-South Cypress, it was the longest bridge in Canada. Today, only its centre span is visible because the approaches were completely covered with fill.
