In this view looking north toward downtown, it's clear this section of the Willamette was very much a working river. The 1910 Hawthorne Bridge dominates the scene. Detail view 1 provides a closer look at the bridge, which is now the oldest vertical lift bridge in the country. Detail view 2 shows the Public Service Building with its "HEAT" sign, which was Portland's tallest building up through the 1960s.
