Looking west from the south bank of the Sanitary & Ship Canal west of the Western Avenue bridge, July 5, 1910, the Eight-Track bridge is complete. It consists of four single-leaf double-track bascule spans number 1 through 4, with number 1 on the east side. Fixed truss spans complete the crossing, spanning from the piers to abutments on each end of the bascule spans. (MWRD photo 4424)
