The Lauer Bridge was built in 1914, the same year as the camera I used to take this photo.
The small town of Lauer, just to the north of it, was likely named after John Lauer, who owned land nearby.
A decade before the bridge was built, this article ran in the local paper:
‘The basket supper given at the Lauer school house was a success in every respect. A very interesting program was rendered by the school. The song, “The Windmill” was especially good. The baskets were sold at auction and the proceeds were $26.75. The supper was the first of the kind ever given in the district and the parents are pleased with the result. The money will be used to buy books for the school.’
