This close-up view shows us many of the details of the barge with a steam donkey powered crane used to build the Oregon City Arch Bridge. It looks pretty chaotic in Detail View 1, with a lot of lumber and ladders surrounding the wood-powered steam donkey. Detail View 2 reveals five workmen high up on the bridge, helping to adjust the supports for the parts being added to the arch under construction.
