Mary and Clara on a bridge

This photo is from Clara Ross-Fowlie's photo album. It is captioned Mary and I, Bridge east of Home Place. Mary Ada Ross (1894-1987) is on the left and her sister Clara Bernice Ross (1897-1994) is on the right. The site of this bridge is unknown to me, but their family lived in Lake Creek Township, Calhoun County, Iowa. The photo dates to the 1910s and there is at least one more photo in the album that shows this same location. Does anyone remember the location of the Ross home in Lake Creek Township?

Clara Bernice (Ross) Fowlie is my great grandmother. Her daughter married Elvis J. Brassfield and that is the connection to the Brassfield surname.
