Taken just before World War II, this crisp view by Ralph Eddy reveals many details of the 1926 bridge and the neighborhood near it on the west bank of the Willamette. Detail view 1 shows Mac's Broiler, a southwest Portland institution which included a small store, a gas station and a dance hall with live music. Detail view 2, south of the bridge, shows a more industrial area, including Commercial Iron Works & Shipbuilders.
