Transcription"This view was taken from the Moorhead end of the Northern Pacific bridge. It was taken after the Grandin elevator had floated down stream. The buildings in the distance are the Fargo flour mill and the elevator which was located on the river bank, on the Fargo side, about a block below the old north bridge." - Identification by James Fay, 1954, and typed on identification sheet.
