Porter's Bluff Bridge
Posted August 27, 2009, by mollie patterson (justussquirrels [at] rainierconnect [dot] com)

I have a what I believe is a picture of this bridge taken when it was built. My grandmother lived there between 1895 & 1910. The picture is black & white and about 5x8. It is mounted on cardboard.
