Exploring Chicago No.1

 
A man crosses the Irv Kupcinet Bridge in Chicago, Illinois, USA. In 1930 this bridge received the "Most Beautiful Steel Bridge" award from the American Institute of Steel Construction. Today, there are a number of bridges in Chicago that display the railing height truss design, and they are all attractive structures, however the older examples like this one display more ornate bridge tender houses. There are three railing height trusses, including Wabash Avenue Bridge, that are located one right after another on this section of the river. Of those three, this is the oldest.
