  1. That low riding vessel going under the bridge appears to be the ferry. I’m not certain, but I believe the ferry landing was just north of the bridge, at the current location of the Cathedral Park boat ramp.

  2. As you are driving along hwy 30 just to the north of the bridge you will see a few places where the hwy ran when they were building the bridge. It was slightly above the current road bed there.

  3. Third attempt to post – minus link. This map (search this site for “Industrial Map of Portland 1924”) shows the eastern landing was at the foot of Pittsburgh Ave., a block south of the bridge.
