Some towns change a lot over the years. Rio Dell, not so much.
I am guessing from the vehicles that this was taken in the 1940s–but I’m still studying up on my old cars so any help would be appreciated.
Please keep clicking on the photo to enlarge. Really. The photo has some pretty great details for those of us who like this sort of thing.

If I’m understanding the caption right (and I think I recognize the typography). we are on Wildwood Avenue in Rio Dell looking south toward Scotia. If you enlarge you’ll see two guys on the right-working on the bridge, maybe?

I won’t get into the environmental consequences of logging in this area-just hoping folks will appreciate the photo for the stories it shares
