|So renowned was the bridge that it was even named 'suicide bridge' on postcards.|
Newspapers came up with wild headlines about it, including:
- Policeman Spoils a Suicide: Interferes When Fascinated Crowd in Lincoln Park is Waiting for Man to Kill Self.
- Doom High Suicide Bridge: Lincoln Park Commissioners to Spoil Convenience for Those Contemplating Self-Destruction (note: this was in 1909, and nothing appears to have come of it. When it was closed a decade later, it was due to poor condition).
- Jumps from Bridge To Lagoon: Says he Tried Suicide for Fun.
