BC-Photo 10.10

This photo taken September 11, 1899, shows a wide view of foundation work for the Eight-Track Bridge over the Main Channel in Section O. Temporary timber trestles were built on each side of the work area to route the three rail lines using this crossing around the construction site. This was another bridge not completed until late 1900. (MWRD photo, disc 9, image 75)
