Multnomah Falls, showing its original bowstring-truss timber bridge. This bridge was built at least as early as 1883, and though it was reinforced about 1891 with additional timbers and cables, it eventually failed. (This photo shows the reinforced version.) See detail 1 for a closer view. The timber bridge was replaced in 1914 by the current reinforced concrete bridge in the same location. -- This photo is restored and printed by Old Oregon.
