Grading is in progress for an approach to a part of the old bridge from the south end, to be used during the time of the construction of the new bridge. The old Ivanhoe, one of the first bridges built in this section, was erected about 1870, according to available records. One article states that Daniel W. Wolfe "operated a ferry until the bridge was built" The article further states that a petition signed by people of Mount Vernon was presented to the city council asking for $5,000 toward the construction of the bridge., In 1876 two spans of the bridge were .taken by Ice, It is pointed out ' ' Tnelibuthwest end of the bridge was rebuilt in 1910 and 1912 with a cement floor.

' Lending acting support to the principals are Peter Loire, Jessie Ralph, Edward Ciannelli, Matthew Boulton and Reginald Owen.
