Southern Pacific Railroad bridge over the Willamette River in Salem, Oregon
This photo is of the Willamette River at Salem, Oregon. The U.S. Army's building seen in the foreground was possibly its headquarters for the dredging which was conducted regularly for many years. The bridge linking Salem and West Salem is seen beyond it, and in the far distance are the towers of the Southern Pacific Railroad bridge. This photo is from the Hugh Stryker Collection.
