NYC - Wappinger Creek Bridge
Posted June 1, 2014, by Clark Vance (cvance [at] dogmail [dot] com)

Looking at the photos here:

http://books.google.com/books?id=IWFZSkeH3AoC&pg=PA57&lpg=PA...

I see a 1915 photo of a bascule and a couple of pages down what looks like a bascule as the present bridge is being built alongside.

The Flickr photo shows a swing bridge. I'm not sure how to reconcile this. There have been at least three bridges here, one of which was destroyed in a train wreck in 1871. Could there have been a swing in place between 1871 and 1915?
