The Swing Bridges


Apr 21 1883 "An act to incorporate the Tonawanda Island Bridge Compan, for the purpose of constructing and operating a bridge from Tonawanda island to North Tonawanda [passed]" - Gen Statutes of State of New York

"March 2, 1885 - Petition was received from H. M. Dodge & Co., asking permission to construct and maintain a swing bridge across Tonawanda Harbor, landing in Erie County to be at or near foot of Clay Street" - Tonawanda News, 1941-11-07. According to a Tonawanda News article, the southern bridge hadn't been used since the 1940s, when the Continental Can company closed.
