Fulton Journal: June 30, 1891

The Fire Works

The fire works display this year will exceed anything ever given here before. It will be a magnificent sight. The first thing in order in the evening will be a grand illumination of the bridge with colored fire and electric lights. The platform from which the fire works are to be shot off will be placed on the top of the truss of the high span the highest point on the bridge and 100 feet above the surface of the river.
