Looking south from the Mayfair Division Bridge, November 25, 1910. The North Shore Channel will be filled with water in four days. The railroad bridge has been carrying trains for a year; the temporary trestle for the track diversion has been removed. In the left foreground, part of the bridge framing appears spanning between the two abutments and supporting the track bed. The Howard Street Bridge appears in the distance. (MWRD photo 4566)
