|Title||Juanita Bridge, Lake Washington, ca. 1910 |
|Date||ca. 1910 |
|Caption||Forbes Creek, which flows into Lake Washington's Juanita Bay, once separated the neighboring towns of Kirkland and Juanita. In 1891, a wooden bridge was built across the creek's marshy outlet to carry wagon and foot traffic. Workers replaced the old bridge in 1932 to accommodate heavier automobile traffic. In 1974, Kirkland rerouted the main road slightly to the east over a new Juanita Bay Bridge, and preserved the 1932 bridge in Juanita Bay Park for pedestrians, cyclists and birdwatchers.|
This photographic postcard, probably made between 1907 and 1912, shows the old wooden Juanita Bridge at Juanita Bay. The photo was taken before the construction of the Lake Washington Ship Canal lowered Lake Washington and Juanita Bay by nine feet. Since 1984, this area has been preserved as a wetland.
|Notes||On verso: Message: this bridge is a half mile long.|
