This vintage postcard, from 1935, shows Multnomah Falls in Oregon and the Benson Foot Bridge spanning it. Multnomah Falls is one of the most spectacular sites to see in Oregon.
The second highest water fall in the United States, Multnomah Falls, is the largest of many falls seen along the highway. A huge volume of water falls from the cliff 840 feet into a rock basin and then 70 feet to the floor of the valley. The Benson Foot Bridge, built in 1914 by Simon Benson, which spans the falls is an engineering wonder to see as well.
The pretty environment of tree-clad hillsides with their ferns and flowers, the rhythmic murmur of the waters, the rainbows of the spray, and the majesty of the surroundings render this place without an equal from a scenic standpoint.
This beautiful vintage postcard, has captured the majesty of the colors of Multnomah Falls. The falls are still there making them definitely a place to visit when you get out there and see the United States!
