Photograph showing a crane on a flatbed rail car. The car is on an elevated railway, and the crane is knocking a boulder from the car in front of it over the edge of the railway. . The photograph may have been taken on the South Jetty at the mouth of the Columbia River during repair work in the early to mid-1930s. Written on the negative sleeve is the following unverified text: “Point Adams Lifeguard Station / ‘Crane said by lookout to have been swept overboard along with another crane and the locomotive’ / 10/22/1934.” The caption may refer to a storm that occurred the weekend of October 21-22, 1934, which knocked a locomotive crane off the railway on the South Jetty.
