Description

Image is of the Bailey and Pippel families in the back of a truck with Walt Pippel and Ferb Bailey standing alongside. They are identified as being on a picnic outing at the south end of the new Knik River Bridge south of Palmer. This location apparently became a “destination” for many in the Palmer area shortly after the bridge opened in the fall of 1936. Several collections in the museum from different sources contain photos of people and their automobiles here at the southerly approach to the bridge.
