How can you tell from looking down the barrels whether an engine is a bridgport or not?

The exhaust port has a thin bridge in the middle running from top to bottom, hence the name Bridgeport! Its there to stop the piston rings from expanding into the port as the piston goes by.

Also the block shouldn't be painted if its a BP.
