12 Railway Lift Bridge at The Forks in Winnipeg, Canada

This old wooden railway lift bridge was designed by Joseph Strauss. He was the same engineer responsible for the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. The bascule bridge was built in 1914 for the Canadian Northern Railway. The huge concrete counterweight was used to raise and lower the wooden deck to accommodate ships sailing along the Assiniboine River.
