While work continues on November 26, 1904, erecting steel framing on the east leaf of the Eighteenth Street bridge, the west leaf has been lowered for installation of the road deck and trolley tracks. Looking southeast, some of the machinery is visible that enables this Scherzer rolling lift bascule bridge to move between the closed and open positions. (MWRD photo 3023)
