Queensboro Bridge, 1909

Opened in 1909, the Queensboro Bridge is a large steel cantilevered-truss bridge spanning the East River between the boroughs of Manhattan and Queens, directly over Roosevelt Island. Carrying cars, buses, and pedestrians with two layers of road, the bridge is one of the busiest in the City. Captured by famous photographer Eugene de Salignac, this vintage photograph shows crowded pedestrian walkway over the bridge the year in opened to the public.
