9 thoughts on “SE McLoughlin Boulevard, 1934

  1. Some of that looks dangerous, but just having a job in the depression years was a good enough reason for many people to take on the risks.

  2. That creek is too big to be Crystal Springs Creek which crosses under Mcloughlin in a culvert so it must be Johnson Creek. That bridge must have been torn down and replaced when they widened Mcloughlin since nothing like it exists at that spot now.

  3. Thankfully, under today’s work rules most of that work would not pass OSHA regulations. Did you notice the ladder on the right, and the man kneeling on the scaffolding? Still, those tradesmen did outstanding work.

  4. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration was established in 1971. Since then, OSHA and our state partners, coupled with the efforts of employers, safety and health professionals, unions and advocates, have had a dramatic effect on workplace safety.
