|East on Chicago River toward Rush and State Street Bridges, c.1910s
This undated photograph shows the State Street Bridge in the foreground and the Rush Street Bridge to the east in the background. Both horses and trucks can be seen on the State Street Bridge, so the photograph could well be taken in the 1910s before the demolition of the Rush Street Bridge in 1920. Note the freight station and rail yards on either side of the State Street Bridge just north of the river.
