June 18, 1925. The California Avenue bridge over the Sanitary & Ship Canal was the first additional bridge constructed after the bridges built when the canal was first constructed. Looking downstream, the north bascule leaf is upright while erection of the steel framing continues. The south bascule leaf has been lowered for the bridge deck to be installed. (MWRD photo 11831)
