The Clark Street center pier swing bridge remained in service connecting the Loop with the North Side in this June 13, 1922, view looking east. While workers are repairing the center pier protective fence, part of the 15-year old Dearborn Street bascule bridge is visible under the left Clark Street bridge opening. While a new bascule bridge was being constructed in 1929, the swing bridge suffered a fatal accident when knocked off its turntable by a passing barge. (MWRD photo 9162)
