Got Garbage? Sweep It under the Bridge.

1930’s Scenic Postcard

Apparently in the 1930’s we just threw our garbage off of a scenic bridge.
Admittedly garbage did not consist of the plastic and the toxins it does today.

Both the picture post card of The Bridge of the Gods and this exchange of  3 letters in the Forest Service regarding a complaint from the Oregon State Police are from the early 1930’s.

Interesting to note that the 2nd letter states that it is legal to dump garbage into the river.
