Division Street Bridge over the Naugatuck River

It was two for the price of one on this quiz, and that proved too much for most. Only Jennifer Barriga and Mark Anthony Izzo get full credit for getting both pictures right on their first reply. They both identified the bridges and the fact that they both crossed the Naugatuck River. It's hard to think of the Naugatuck as a river from these pictures, yet anyone who was here in 1955 knows how deceiving that is.
