Under Construction

Welcome to this week’s edition of Old Photo Friday. To we have a photo that likely dates to 1928-1929, unlike the date stamped on the back of the photo “April 15, 1930”. The Bridge opened November 11, 1929.

According to this brief history of the Bridge, because the Bridge opened ahead of schedule there was a deal where the Bridge owner would split the revenues with McClintic-Marshall, the company who constructed the bridge 50%/50% between the opening and April 16, 1930.

The date on the back of the photo is the day prior, meaning the story/photo likely ran the next day. Perhaps a story about how the profit sharing deal was expiring with the builders?

Regardless of the reason, it’s an interesting photo all the same…

Have a safe weekend everyone, see you back here Monday.
