This highly detailed view of the bridge was printed in a large size by Benjamin Gifford shortly after the bridge was completed in 1914. The roadway is still gravel, so I'm dating it to 1916. Detail view one reveals the beauty of the design and the attention to detail paid by those building it. It was the second bridge finished on the Columbia River Scenic Highway. Designer K. P. Billner considered it one of his strongest and best-built bridges.
