Description: "The Sandy & Beaver Aqueduct at Bolivar was of a unique, all-wood construction. Banks of parallel, Y-shaped members anchored to the wooden piers form nearly a hundred strong triangular shapes visible in the picture. The construction does a remarkable job of support without detectable sag."
