Peterborough, industrial past, ON

(continuer en français)

The Canadian Pacific Railway Bridge crossing the Otonabee River dates from 1913 but stands on piers built in 1882 for an earlier bridge. It is interesting to note that the structure is not uniform from one end to the other. The first section spanning a wider gap was originally planned to be converted into a swing bridge, like the other bridge one kilometre downstream. It has therefore been a temporary structure, since 1913.
