1880 Bath I to Goat I Niagara NY

View of the bridge to Bath Island from the road that leads to it. Buildings that make up a paper mill sit on the other side of the bridge. A support wall runs along the island on the left side of the bridge, and water can be seen running over spillways along the wall.
