Would someone please explain (words of one syllable would be OK) the connection between the alleged "Willy Kuhne" and the presumed William Willis, whose patent of 1873 (or 6) has been cited in tones of serious nyah nyah nyah in response to my citation of a bridge completed in 1883 -- even assuming for the purpose -- any purpose -- that Kuhne was a real person and his alleged "invention," whether in 1878 as alleged, or some other year, even 1875... was "brilliant."

I was referring to Bob Kiss's post. I did not look for pattents issued to Willy Kuhne nor have I ever heard of him, which means nothing.
I agree with you that I would suspicious of historical research that had no citations included.
