The Second Narrows Bridge in Vancouver connected the city with the north shore and was constructed in 1925. The bridge spanned the Burrard inlet and in the next few years was hit and damaged by several ships. In 1930 the barge Pacific Gatherer became wedged under the bridge and the rising tide caused the span to become dislodged and later to fall into the water. This caused the bridge to be closed for 4 years till the provincial government purchased it and rebuilt it with a lift section. The tug boat Lorne is in the foreground, in the picture-center below. The Pacific Gatherer had been built as the 4 mast steel hull barque Alsterberg in 1902. By 1922 it had been demasted and reduced to a barge, being used along the west coast. In 1936 it sank while being towed.
