Looking Back — Hoquiam’s 8th St. Bridge

The old 8th St. Bridge has swung open to let the tug Deck Boy through in September 1948. The bridge was replaced by the Riverside Bridge in 1971. There is a boat sculpture on the north end footing, and 8th St. Landing at the south end footing, that mark where the old bridge once crossed over the Hoquiam River. If you have any information on this photo or others from this feature, visit and submit it via the website’s feedback form.
