Looking northwest on June 6, 1905, erection of steel framing is in progress for the east leaf of the permanent Harrison Street bascule bridge while a tugboat tows a schooner downstream. The large building and smokestack at left is the Harrison Street Generating Station, which was expanded in 1903, more than doubling its generating capacity. (MWRD photo 3116)
