We're not sure of the location of this bridge over the Little White Salmon river. It was probably an image for a postcard circa 1900.
Up by where the fish hatchery, and newer bridge of course, is now, Cook-Underwood Road?

When I first opened the page, I thought it was a Davidson photo.
This is the country of gihugical cedar and fir trees, but it looks like they have already been removed.

An untreated wood king post bridge may not have a long life but definitely beautiful to a bridge freak, I mean fan, like me.

Wonder what the sign on the tree says? Looks like car tracks and not wagon tracks in the dirt, were these two couples out motoring? Those were the days when if you hopped the rail and then fell off into the gorge it was your fault.

How beautiful! I agree with Kenn -- old, wooden bridges like this just invite peering over. This reminds me of the Pooh Sticks bridge in Winnie the Pooh. Perhaps they are floating pine cones in a race.

Sorry, can't read much of the sign. It has two bold lines at top, with the largest word ending in "NING". It is followed by a full page of smaller print.
That's a camera case sitting near the left rail.

None have the "---NING" spelling though.
