We can date this image by noting the presence of the suspension bridge, opened in 1888, and the absence of many paper mill buildings on the west shore, which were built shortly after the bridge was finished. Restored and printed from an original glass negative, this view looks downstream from just below Willamette Falls. The pile of wood along the shore in the foreground was likely fuel for the steamboats that stopped at the 4th Street Dock in Oregon City.
