From the Lucille St. bridge, looking NW. Some of rail lines leading into Seattle. Some of the spurs off of these main lines are not in use today as industries have relocated outside the city limits or just closed down.
The Golden Gare Bridge, taken 15 years ago, looking upward. Shot using my Minolta x-700 35mm film camera.
After getting past a No Trespassing sign and fence I was able to get a closer look at this closed pedestrian pier and dock. In the background of one of the images you can see the West Seattle high-rise bridge. This bridge was a replacement for a drawbridge that was hit by a ship back in the 1980’s, I believe.
Rippling water wake of large barge. What appeared to me as abandoned piers. One of them was a pedestrian pier that is now barricaded. To access the abandoned piers I had to ‘overlook’ a No Trespassing sign :-). Trespassing is pretty common to get into abandoned places or ones of high risk. My next post will take a closer look at the abandoned pier in the “No Trespassing” Zone.
The image with the bridge is a northwestern view. The bridge is the West Seattle High Rise. The image with the most clouds is a southern view.
The Duwamish River is a working river as well as one used for transit out into Elliott Bay by fisherman and recreational use. The next posting will highlight some of those activities.
