Broadway Bridge, Portland, with bascule raised during construction

Photograph showing the Broadway Bridge in Portland with one bascule raised in March 1913, while the bridge was under construction. A cropped version of this photograph and a short story were published on Page 17 of the Oregon Journal on Thursday, Mary 6, 1913, under the headline “Move 2000 Tons Easily In Bridge Test.” The photograph had the following caption: “West leaf of the Broadway bridge bascule in place.” The story reported that the leaf had worked almost perfectly in tests, that the east leaf would be tested within a week, and the bridge was expected to be completed April 1. Image note: Photograph shows discoloration due to deterioration of the negative.
