Hunting party in Drawbridge 1922

In the 1920’s, Drawbridge was a paradise for both hunters and fishermen, attracted to the area’s abundance of wetland fish and fowl. Weekend cabins were built on stilts alongside the railway tracks, with pier-like walkways that extended to the railway.  By 1926 there were 90 cabins, two hotels and several gun-clubs. On weekends during duck hunting season, as many as 500 people visited.   -from collection of Marge Callow
