photoblog image The Bathurst Bridge

The Bathurst Bridge

At Bathurst Street, just South of Front Street in Toronto, is an old steel truss roadbridge that spans the raillands near the Lake. According to Spacing, a Toronto urban affairs magazine/blog, the beautiful (albeit subjectively) old Bathurst bridge, the last truss bridge of its kind in Toronto, will be torn down and replaced with a new one. As the weather was warming up I decided to take a few photos of the bridge. I quite like how this one turned out.

Nice picture, I really like the contrast and the effect of the sun.
That sucks, they are going to tear it down? I like that bridge... "beautiful" maybe not, but it is kinda cool, and interesting, and makes for good photos... also I don't think it's the last truss bridge like that, there's at least one more, on Queen St E, over the Don River/DVP. Maybe not exactly the same, but quite similar in style.

I love these old bridges. I'm not sure I'd call them beautiful either, but not everything needs to be beautiful to be valuable.

Great shot!
Iain Myrans: hehe, hence 'subjective'. they can be in that 'i love old rusty industrial era bridges' kind of way.
