Comments

Highest single spile trestle in the world being over 100 ft. (110) Photo A.W. Ericson, Arcata. Conrad S. Bullwinkle had rented the ranch to his nephew, Herman Balke (father of this collector). The trestle crossed Little River Valley and crossed Balke Creek at the start of the canyon 1/2 to 3/4 miles south of Bulwinkle. It gradually rose to Dows Prairie then joined the Carson line who took the cars on to town. || Jerry Rohde (August 2013) states "Daily Humboldt Standard of March 20, 1908, page 3, indicates that the subject of the photos 'the big trestle, will be completed by Saturday night.'"
