Brooklyn Bridge:
Made by Thomas Edison in 1899. Film is in the public domain. Not very clear, as I imagine this has been copied from a video tape of a film that is over a hundred years old. BUT, it is an excellent historical item!

Calhoun Street Bridge: 11-15-2019 Calhoun St. Bridge crossing
NJ to PA crossing. The video didn't play great for me but it gives a better sense of scale of crossing this quarter mile + long 1884 Phoenix Column bridge. I think most of the rattles are in the car, caused by the expanded metal deck. A lot of people bust on PA & NJ, but this one is a win!

Division Street Bridge: Chicago Drawbridge that was demolished at East Division Street
This First-Generation Chicago-type Bascule Bridge built in 1903 is was removed in July 2014 and replacement with a temporary gantry fixed bridge by the Chicago Department of Transportation and reopened in the fall of 2014. This bridge most closely resembles the initial designs by City of Chicago engineers developed around the turn of the last century. It was the second Chicago-type drawbridge in the world to be completed.

PE - Fletcher Drive Trestle: Pacific Electric Training Video from 1914
So this is interesting for two reasons. It may well the oldest training film in history. In 1914 the Pacific Electric (“Red Cars”) created a movie to train their conductors on good behavior. Second, if you go to 7:12, you can see the PE Bridge over Fletcher Street. Safety First!

Lincoln Park Passerelle: Chicago blizzard 2011 closes Lake Shore Drive HD
View from Lincoln Park Passerelle of the disaster, includes many views of the bridge itself. Lake Shore Drive in Chicago turns into a car graveyard the day after a massive blizzard brought 20+ inches of snow and 60+ mph winds. Motorists were stranded when the storm hit in the early evening of February 1, 2011. After some were stuck for hours, they abandoned their cars for safety. This was unreal, like a scene from a movie!
