CS&SC = Chicago Sanitary & Ship Canal
This swing bridge has been replaced by a bridge that is high enough that it does not need a movable span.
Construction of the Ninth Street swing bridge over the Chicago Sanitary and Ship Canal extension on November 9, 1905, near Lockport, IL.
I'm on old 9th Street with the new bridge to the right over the Des Plaines River. The elevation of the new bridge is going up so that it clears the CS&SC in the distance of this photo.
