Aerial Lift Bridge

The Aerial Lift Bridge (earlier known as the Aerial Bridge or Aerial Ferry Bridge) is a major landmark in the port city of Duluth, Minnesota. The span is a vertical lift bridge, which is rather uncommon, but it began life as an extremely raretransporter bridge—the first of just two such bridges ever constructed in the United States.Originally built in 1905, the bridge was upgraded in 1929–30 to the current lifting design and continues to operate today. The bridge was added to theNational Register of Historic Places on May 22, 1973. A maritime museum maintained by the United States Army Corps of Engineers exists near the site of the bridge.

I started the Northern Images website in 1992 for the pure enjoyment of sharing the beauty of Duluth and the Lake Superior Region with people like yourself. After 16 years, the joy of sharing God's creation, still motivates me to keep adding pictures to the 1500 that are already on the web site.

I hope you enjoy the scenery as much as I did when I was actually taking the pictures.0991
