This is one of the longest concrete bridges in America, crossing the Mohawk River, from Schenectady, over Van Slyck and Hog Islands, to Scotia, on the north river shore. It is for foot passengers and to carry the enormous motor car traffic of the Old Mohawk Turnpike, which begins in Scotia at the right-hand end of the bridge in this picture.
