Plate 22. Looking north at the Boom Island and southern Bassett's Creek areas in about 1904. The Boom Island railroad yards are in the right center. Just to the south is the West Side Power building at the right center with the North Star Sawmill just to the left of it. The bridge in the center is the Plymouth Avenue Bridge with the Broadway Bridge and a Northern Pacific Railroad bridge to the north. Note the large stacks of lumber and the numerous steam-powered sawmills along the river.
