    The County of Santa Barbara drawings of bridges span 3 linear feet and date from 1914. The collection is composed of nine original architectural drawings documenting four different bridges along the state highway in Santa Barbara, California. Drawings document the Pony Pratt Truss Bridge over the Dos Pueblos Creek, the Eagle Creek Bridge, a 20 foot Bridge on the State Highway, and the Pedregosa Creek stone bridge- in the form of elevations, sections, and counterfort schedules. All but one of the drawings have Frank F. Flournoy listed as the County Surveyor and Edward T. Flaherty listed as the Consulting Engineer.
