My question is in regards to a little known bridge in Minnesota that crosses into Canada called the Outlaw Bridge. It was built in 1917 across the Pigeon River and used until a government bridge was built around 1934 and eventually moved down river in 1963 to it's current location. It was called the "Outlaw Bridge" because it was built without the help of either the Canadian or U.S. government. But rather built by poeple of both countries who wanted and needed a bridge. My question; does anyone out there know anything more about the bridge? And are there any photos or post cards of the bridge or the surrounding immediate area of the bridge (Sextus City, Mn. U.S.A.) prior to 1934?

You asked your question some time ago, but in case you're still interested--and haven't found what you wanted--currently there is a postcard of Sextus City's bridge listed on e-Bay. However this is the steel truss bridge that in 1934 replaced the original wooden one. For that you'll need to go to Wikipedia---and behold, you'll find a clear photo of the wooden bridge and the tale of how it came to be.
