Description: The bridge gang at work on one of the many bridges crossing the Amargosa in about 1927. My father is in the foreground. The white grade is no illusion. Much of the T&T roadbed in Sperry wash was "reinforced" by tailings from the Borax mill in Death Valley Junction. [H. R.]

This trestle is at the lower narrows of the Amargosa Canyon, just before its junction with Sperry Wash. JAMc
