This is the new Interstate Bridge, the first auto bridge between Portland and Vancouver, shortly before it was opened on Feb. 14th, 1917 - which was Oregon's 58th anniversary of its statehood. Detail view 1 shows barrels and lumber still stacked on the bridge's roadway, with a construction barge behind. This year (2012) was the bridge's 95th anniversary. It was joined by a second, essentially identical span, in 1958.
