Arthur Anderson backing up down the Fox River downtown Green Bay towards the bay.
[Judging by the road grid. the dolphins and the pleasure boats in the foreground, it is going under this bridge.]

I labeled these notes with bridgeStrauss because the old bridge was built by his company. But it is not his normal design. Douglas calls it a Strauss overhead counterweight trunnion bascule bridge. Researching this design goes on the "todo" list.

The boats really had to "thread a needle" to get through this one.
