Where Was This Photo Taken?

It was somewhere in the Malvern area, but where exactly?

The photo above comes from the archives of the Library of Congress. The structure pictured dates to 1860, and it is still standing today.

Can you guess where the photo was taken? Submit your answers in the comments, and we'll post the correct answer with a current photo next Wednesday.

Or is it the covered bridge at Valley Forge Park? Yellow Springs Rd and Rte 252.

I think it's Yellow Spring Road and 252 in Valley Forge park the where this covered bridge is located.

At the above link, look at pictures 5, 6 & 7, or so. I believe the missing planks on the side match up with the picture.

For all those that think Valley Forge Knox Covered Bridge, take a closer look. http://goo.gl/maps/f1N00 See the difference?

I'm deferring to you, Eric. The Knox bridge in Valley Forge was recently repainted and had a lot of wood siding replaced. Notice, too, that the planks on the floor of the Knox bridge run lengthwise, while the ones in the above photo run horizontally.

Yes... I didn't notice that. But the whole structure is just weaker. The beams are nothing like the original.
