S. St. Paul Street in Mower County, MN?

Hello again,

I have a couple of questions regarding street addresses in Austin from earlier days. Can anyone tell me where S. St. Paul Street or Road was located, approximately?

Also, I have a newspaper article from the Austin Herald dated 1905 with the headline "Bennie Olson Falls From Overhead Bridge". It goes on to tell how 7 year-old Bennie and his friends were playing on the bridge tossing bottles down to see who could hit the rails. He fell and was seriously injured and was taken to his home on Collins Street, apparently seen by the doctor at home. The article doesn't say if this was a railroad bridge or automobile bridge. Looking for any ideas as to where this bridge might have been.

Thanks for reading my post.
