This appears to be an early Camelback evolution design. Lacking the Polygonal arch of the classic Parker, and only 4 of the 5 sections usually found in the Camelback designs. The diagonals appear to have the Pratt layout. This is the same design found on the Sugarloaf Bridge 15 miles E of Cameron on CR 264.
