This photo, taken circa 1925, shows a partially open bridge on the Milwaukee River in downtown Milwaukee. The city has numerous bascule and vertical lift bridges over the river, which move to allow boats to pass under them. In recent years, Milwaukee has been renovating several of the bridges downtown.
