Details

The Lake Oswego Railroad Bridge, built as the Southern Pacific Railroad Bridge north of Tyron Creek, nearing the end of its construction. The bridge was built by the Southern Pacific Company, in response to the desires of Portland city planners for an eastside railway bypass to keep rail traffic out of downtown Portland. Note the tools used by the workmen shown in the detail photos. Clearly trestle construction required some serious brace and bit work. -- This photo is restored and printed by Old Oregon.
