It is easy to find a place to park because Ewing is a four lane road that has to use a two lane bridge. But I didn't get my act together in time to take a video of it going down.
By the time I got out on the bridge, the three sailboats for which it was raised were north of CN/EJ&E Bridge.

Actually, the Battle of Waterloo took place in 1815. [ChicagoTribune] ByGoneChicago has some pictures not only of the grave, but of the scrapyard when it was more prosperous.

Here is an excellent aerial shot of the Calumet River as it enters from Lake Michigan at roughly 92nd Street.
On the right side of the river (south side) is what is now the Illinois International Port District's Iroquois Landing facility.
On the left are the remains of where US Steel (USX) once was.
Notice the breakwater out in the lake. See the barges being towed by a tugboat, which just came through the opened-up 92nd & Ewing Ave. bridge?
This photo (date unknown, maybe around 2000?) was before the extension of South Shore Drive through the USX / Lakeside Development property.
January 1981. My mom was allowed under the 92nd Street bridge to photograph some work being done. She was soooo happy!Christy Matczak Boyle They warned her about climbing under and she said “don’t worry, I can swim”
