TitleOne of two part panorama. Interstate Bridge under construction
DescriptionA black and white image of a view across the Columbia River towards the construction of Vancouver-Portland Interstate Bridge (aka Columbia River Interstate Bridge) built 1915-1917. A building crane and a number of smokestacks emitting plumes of smoke are visible. There seems to be a water tower on the left of the photo. Tall pilings have been driven in places along the riverbank; some wooden buildings are visible. The verticle lift bridge designed by Waddell & Harrington has just begun to jut out over the water.
