Comments

Label on front: Douglas Memorial Bridge, May 17, '26. Postmark on back: REQUA/MAY/18/1926/CALIF. Message penned on back: May 18, 1926 Dear Nom: . . . . . This is the Bridge-what do you think of it? This was taken before some of the false work was taken off. It really looks much better now and better if you could see it with your own eyes. See the bears on each end where I've marked- Much love Edith. This message establishes this photo was taken somewhat before the date on its front, but probably still not before April, 1926. Printing on back of photo paper the same as on #70 and #71, i.e. "square cornered AZO." Not a building now stands on the flat to the upriver of the bridge: anything left by Dec., 1964, went in the flood of that date, which also took this bridge, leaving only the four bears.
