Industrial scene of the downtown bridge under construction, workers visible throughout the site, an elevated railway (a Wabash Railway E8) to the left. The wooden frame with a McCaughen & Burr, St. Louis label, artist's biography affixed verso.

Special Note: The bridge, completed in 1951, was originally constructed by Stupp Brothers Bridge Company of St. Louis and the work was probably commissioned by the consigning family. In 1968 the name was changed to the Martin Luther King Bridge in honor of the civil rights leader.
