Milt Buckner - The Beast

Bridges at 16th and at Cermak

I can never remember this top bridge's name, I should probably call it the Canal Street Bridge, because there is another Cermak Avenue bridge for pedestrian travel. One of these days I'm going to take State Street up to 16th, where you can see the RR tracks that eventually lead to my favorite bridge--not sure why the green tarp is up, I might take a few photos before some other hipster building goes up--and I'll walk past that baseball diamond at Clark Street and backtrack a few blocks. I have photos of Chinatown and the old trainyards near 38th and Morgan, but these were stragglers at the beginning of one roll.
