Artist's Description

Railway and streetcar tracks atop the High Level Bridge, Edmonton, Canada. These tracks are on the upper of two decks, the lower of which carries automotive traffic and pedestrians. The span in the photo is just under 2900 feet (877m), is about 175 feet (53m) above the river and was opened for service in 1913, connecting the then independent communities of Strathcona and Edmonton. Although commercial rail traffic ceased in 1989, a streetcar now traverses the bridge in the summer months.
