Northern Ave

This is the Northern Ave Bridge, which crosses Fort Point Channel from Atlantic Ave to the South Boston Waterfront. The Northern Ave Bridge is a swing bridge that was built in 1908 and was originally used as a roadway and I believe at one point as a rail bridge. Now it's a pedestrian bridge, and looks very pretty when you take long exposure pictures of it in the freezing cold (not today, today was nice...this photo is from sometime in March). I would give you more intellectually stimulating information on the bridge, but I'm not having much luck finding any!

Isn't it maddening when you photograph something that's been around for decades, but then you can't find any information on it?

Nice photo. The light reflecting off the fencing gives the surface a warm glow. I love a good trestle bridge, don't you?
