Burlington Canal Lift Bridge. Burlington, Ontario

Caption:

Picturesque lift bridge, in foreground, is called one of Ontario's worst bottlenecks because it must be raised for every ship which goes into Hamilton harbor. This harbor traffic is frequently very heavy. The lift bridge, too, has been the scene of several accidents in which cars have plunged from it into the canal. The department has already acquired all the land in the vicinity necessary for the new development.
