Taken in the fall of 1912, crews from the Canadian Bridge Company of Walkerville, Ontario assemble spans of the Blende River Viaduct (Pass Lake Trestle). This structure was one of the biggest engineering projects on the Canadian Northern Ontario Railway line built from Ruel (Sudbury area) to Port Arthur, Ontario between 1911 and 1914. Construction on the 2258-foot trestle, still the longest in central Canada, was completed in only 8 months.
