This unique Rall lift bridge was built by the
C&IW over a slip of the Sanitary Canal.
It is a Chicago landmark.
Please access Historic Bridges for pictures. I have studied the satellite image, and there does not appear to be a legal way to get decent pictures of this bridge from land.
This bridge over the Collateral Channel is another bridge to nowhere, and it is locked down. What little track that is left has had the turnout with the IC removed just east of the bridge. But as Nathan Holth in Historic Bridges commented, this Theodor Rall design is rare. It is one of the eleven bridges on the Historic Chicago Railroad Bridges list.
Update: Someone did get a boat. A video of the bridge. I found the link in ChicagoDrawBridges.
Edward Kwiatkowski posted a picture that includes the north side of this bridge.
