International Bridge

The postcard shows the International Bridge, probably in the 1910s. The writing on top says: International Bridge over the Rio Grande between El Paso and Ciudad Juarez, Mexico. The bridge used by Presidents Taft and Diaz at the time of their memorable meeting in October, 1909. The detention station of the U. S. Immigration Department may be seen on the right.
