"625.-Portage Bridge and First Fall of Genesee, from Glen Iris."

"Views on the Line of Erie Railway"

LE Walker, Publisher, Warsaw NY

circa 1870

The Portage Wooden Bridge hides behind the mists of the Upper Fall in the stereo taken from the South Lawn of the Glen Iris Estate. This portion of the lawn was often called the "Glen Iris Park" and was a favorite spot for tourists and photographers alike. Note the gravel path that was probably part of William Webster's design. Another view from the South Lawn is found below.
