Parts of the sidewalk around the Main Street Bridge sound hollow because a block on either side of the bridge is built on pylons, according to Noah Schultz of Watertown. Schultz provided these two photos to the Daily Times from the Watertown Historical Society. ABOVE: This photo from 1952 shows the bridge with no support below the sidewalk. Schultz said in addition to the pilings, there is a tunnel that runs from the river east to at least Third Street. BELOW: This 1905 photo illustrates the the crew pouring concrete for the foundation of the Masonic Temple adjacent to the bridge.
