Photo 206

Real photo postcard
Steam Engine on Portage Bridge
unknown photographer/publisher
postmarked 1908

The photographer must have had nerves of steel to take this photograph of a freight train coming towards him on the Portage Bridge. He was standing near the west end of the iron trestle, looking east. The station and Cascade House is not visible, but you can just make out a building on the north side of the tracks beyond the bridge.

This postcard, sent from Silver Springs in November 1908.
