Looking north across the State St. bridge, 1870/now, Chicago
[The arch truss 1870 swing bridge is reminds me of the old Rush Street Bridge.]

[This would be a predecessor swing bridge. How do we determine if we are looking south or north?]

The State St bridge seen in this photo was a swing bridge and replaced a similar bridge destroyed in the Great Chicago Fire of 1871. There has been a bridge in this location since 1864.
