Most photos of Multnomah Falls without a bridge were taken after the old timber bridge was removed but before construction of the current concrete bridge.

However, this view by Isaac Davidson was created a few years before the first timber bridge was built in the early 1880s. Then, as now, the dramatic falls drew many visitors, and most early photographers had multiple photos of the falls available for sale.
