Image is an elevated view from the hill at the north end of the bridge looking south at the completed "falsework" and beginning work on placing the permanent support beams for the bridge. At left foreground appear the end portion of two large beams and at right is a stack of short beams. One long beam and several of the shorter beams are visible lying on the log falsework of the bridge where four men are at work. Part of an approach road to the south end work area is visible. Snow covers the ground. A hill is prominent beyond in near background and the thin second growth trees on it make it appear decidedly hairy.
