|Title||Aerial of Ballard Bridge and Salmon Bay from south, Seattle, 1940 |
|Caption||The first Ballard Bridge opened in December 1917, crossing the Lake Washington Ship Canal and linking the Ballard district by road to Seattle. By 1940, the old wooden bridge was considered too unsafe to carry the increased traffic, and it was replaced by a newer, higher span.|
This photo shows the new Ballard Bridge crossing Salmon Bay. Fisherman's Terminal is at the bottom of the image, while the neighborhood of Ballard can be seen at the top. Note the log rafts floating in the bay.
|Notes||Handwritten on image: Fisherman's dock and new Ballard Bridge.|
Handwritten on sleeve: Seattle - bridges - Ballard - airview.
