*******ourvideosite****/View/V579 The sign says Built in 1853 and dedicated to Elijah Moore, son of an early settler, this bridge is the oldest covered bridge in daily use in New York State. Constructed at a cost of $800, the distinctive diamond pattern of the Town Lattice Truss is pinned together with trunnels, or tree nails. The roof and siding serve to protect the structure from the ravages of nature. Popular in the 1800's because of plentiful and inexpensive timber, covered bridges or timber tunnels became places for social gatherings. This is the only remaining covered bridge in Tompkins County. As far as the Poor Man's Steadicam (PMSC), this was my first use, and is presented unedited. Pretty smooth up the stairs, although I think through years of practice, I walk on flat ground more steady without the PMSC. This footage is with the camera in the top position of the PMSC.
