Day 46: Canal Street Bridge

The Canal Street Bridge is a railroad bridge that was built in 1914.  It is a vertical lift bridge that goes across the south branch of the Chicago River, and is the only vertical lift bridge that crosses the Chicago River.  In December 2007 it was designated a Chicago Landmark.
