The High Level is neither infamous or famous, but she is beautiful. Love taking the streetcar from my buddy's place in Oliver into Strathcona in the summer

The Rosedale Valley Bridge (also called the Rosedale Ravine Bridge[1]) is a covered arch bridge in the northeast of Downtown Toronto, Ontario. Built in 1966 by architect John B. Parkin (now part of Delcan Corporation), the concrete bridge carries Line 2 trains of the subway across the Rosedale Ravine

Although the bridge once had open skylights for ventilation, they were later covered to reduce noise to the surrounding area.[4] It can be seen from the north side of Bloor Street, which crosses from the adjacent Prince Edward Viaduct, or from below on Rosedale Valley Road which it passes over.

Wasauksing Swing Bridge (Parrysound Swing Bridge)

Source: Wikipedia.com


The historic Wasauksing Swing Bridge, originally built in 1895, is the Wasauksing First Nation's only road access to the mainland, and an important crossing for area residents and visitors. The bridge is owned and maintained by the Government of Canada through Indigenous Services Canada (ISC), and operated by the Wasauksing First Nation.

There are a number of these dotted throughout cottage country in Ontario.

Sometimes I really wonder what SSP-ers in the Ottawa-Gatineau forum think when they see my avatar (profile picture). It must be very misleading.
