The Tooth Rock Viaduct was devised as a way to traverse a cliff, instead of blasting through the unstable rock. This view shows it shortly after it was completed, with the Columbia River to the right. Reproduced from one of a series of hand-colored prints produced by George M. Weister to celebrate the opening of the Columbia River Highway. This section of the Highway was abandoned in 1936, but has been reopened to bicycle and pedestrian traffic.
