A spectacular 1930 image of the St. Johns Bridge during construction. The main cables and suspender cables are in place waiting for the deck to be hung. “Cables Manufactured and Erected by Roebling” refers to the John A. Roebling’s Sons Company, whose founder designed the Brooklyn Bridge. In the distance, below the center cable span, you can see the old vernon standpipe which was moved from Northeast Portland in 1920.
