South River Bridge

We think this may be the bridge, since you can see it has a movable center in the foreground of the photo. The shadows indicate the photo is South facing. The photo was posted by MD State Highway on Facebook in November 2017.

Original swing style drawbridge closed November 11, 1982, replaced with the current modern bridge. Pictures of the old span may be available from the Annapolis Capital newspaper.
