Now & Then: A bridge to the future, ca. 1891

THEN: The Latona Bridge was constructed in 1891 along the future line of the Ship Canal Bridge. This, perhaps the oldest surviving photo of the bridge, was taken looking south from what is now the Burke-Gilman Trail. The Northlake Apartment/Hotel on the right survived into the 1960s.
