Several automobiles are seen in the parking lot along the river. A paddle wheel excursion boat is visible beside two other boats docked on the Peoria side of the Illinois River. The bridge is named for Murray M. Baker, the man responsible for bringing Caterpillar to Peoria in the early twentieth century.
