Looking to the north. To the right (east) of this picture is an abandoned bridge covered with weeds, vines and overgrowth, making it impossible to tell what kind of bridge structure this is.

I believe this bridge was originally part of the St. Louis Water Works Railroad that lead to the Chain of Rocks plant.
