Wishkah Bridge's Bridge
Russel Kwan
fiber based silver gelatin
edition of 9

There is an amazingly small 40 HP motor up there that swings this entire span on a turntable underneath. That circular thingie on the left is the drive gear and underneath it is the drive shaft. When the bridge was built, gangs of men swung the bridge by hand, literally pushing it directly from the turntable. Now, that's what I call a "day job".
