It looks like it could be. Used to jump into West Canada from the top and did make it to the third "hole". Never did the fourth.

Thanks again.

My mother Dorothy Sanderson (Phillips)was on this bridge with her brother George Sanderson around 1915/16.She was 10 or 11 he was 11 or 12.A truck blew a tire that flew into her and knocked her down and tore her dress. People who witnessed it said that she saw the tire coming towards them and pushed him out of the way. She was brusied but okay he had a cut under his chin where he hit the pipe thet ran along the bridge.The newspaper reported it as part of the Police record of the day.She still has the newspaper clipping. Great pictures! My mom and Uncle, Bruce Sanderson, got a kick out of the pictures.Thanks
