Time Period

Summer of 1936 prior to August


Image is an oblique view of the downriver side of the bridge seen from the south end, including the temporary approach. A car is prominent in foreground on a rough gravel road that takes a sharp curve to the left onto the approach. The concrete wing wall and cribbing supporting temporary planks of the approach are visible in foreground. A small cottonwood tree frames the image at left. River water is low enough to expose rocks around the pier footings. Heavy forest lines the river's far bank with Bodenburg Butte and Lazy Mountain in the background.
