The scaffolding seen here was built to apply the metal mesh and coating of gunite for the bridge. The steel structure had already been completed. Detail view 1 informs us that the Gunite was being applied by the firm "Lanning & Hoggan", while the general contractor and engineer for the bridge was "A. Guthrie & Company". The Guthrie firm, out of St. Paul, Minnesota, achieved fame a few years later when they completed the eight-mile-long Cascade Railroad Tunnel under Stevens Pass in Washington, still the longest in the western hemisphere.
