1942 Mason City View

September 3, 1942

Note the MWAK bridge coming across the river center bottom. This was supposed to have railroad track across it, but never did. In the upper right, you can see a gravel conveyor, but a bit harder to see are the railroad tracks next to the conveyor. These tracks came across the construction trestle to reach this side of the river.
