Kinzie Street Bridge

I didn't realize until I looked at the satellite image that this bridge has just one leaf.

Kinzie Street Bridge rotated across Chicago River, Chicago, Illinois, November 13, 1899.
[This view must be looking north because the swing bridge in the background appears to be on an angle with respect to the river channel. So it would be the Milwaukee bridge.]

[I hope that road surface is mud and not squished road apples from horses. The bridge was built in 1909 while horses still ruled the road. The bridge was rehabilitated in 1999.]
