Construction Manager Edward Lind proudly poses at the top of the newly closed arch for the Arch Bridge at Willamette Falls. Of course, Eddy, the photographer, also needed to climb this high. Designed by Conde McCullough, the bridge utilized a novel design. It was built of steel, but then covered with sprayed on gunite to protect the steel from corrosive fumes from local paper mills. The final effect was much like a concrete arch bridge - a design used often by McCullough throughout Oregon.
