A photographic guidebook to Chicago's amazing moveable bridges. Chicago River Bridges presents the untold history and development of Chicago's iconic bridges, from the first wood footbridge built by a tavern owner in to the fantastic marvels of steel, concrete, and machinery of today. It is the story of Chicago as seen through its bridges.   DOWNTOWN — The iconic railroad bridge just south of the Kinzie Street Bridge on the North Branch of the Chicago River that almost always is .

  For many of us, Chicago's bridges are just an everyday part of life, rarely considered outside those unfortunate and annoying moments when we find ourselves.

Chicago, therefore, has become the cradle of the modern bascule bridge and Chicago engi. The McCormick Bridgehouse & Chicago River Museum is the only bridgehouse open to the public where you can see the inner workings and gears of a Chicago movable bascule bridge. Visit on a bridge lift day to marvel at the gears opening the bridge.
