Details

We're looking downstream on the Tualatin, probably from Field's Bridge, at the railway bridge that paralleled it. The main use for this bridge and its electric railway was to bring cord wood from the other side of the Tualatin to paper mills at Willamette Falls. This railway bridge was located where the current Field's Bridge sits. The carriage, and then auto bridges where traditionally located about a block upstream, at the end of Dollar Street. It was not until 1952, when the first concrete Field's Bridge was built, that it was relocated to this old location for the railway bridge.
