Iron Bridge, build in 1911, Queen St, Toronto. "This river I step in is not the river I stand in."

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

The Queen Street Viaduct (usually known as the Queen Street Bridge) in Toronto, carries traffic across the Don River. The Steel Truss bridge was built in 1911 to replace an early stone bridge over the river.

At the top of the western side of the bridge is a piece of public art created in 1996 by Eldon Garnet. It consisted of a clock, which ceased to work and the mechanism and hands were removed in 2010, with the phrase: "This river I step in is not the river I stand in".


I think this should mean that the time is marching on, as the water is flowing.

Great shot, Tom! You beat me to it by two weeks (and much better light, too, than we had yesterday) Won't be posting my version, now then :)

Tomas, I just now read your reply to my comment. That was a very good explanation of the "standing in the river" slogan and there is some real depth of meaning there. I'm glad I went back and read it. Keep looking up. Guy

Guy, I just signedoff my Pano, when I saw your comment.

Verbiage, if I look first, if there are better photos then mine, I would probably not post 1/2 of my pics.

I vent so see Alex Pangman swing band at the Distillery, so I just walked over. I always liked this bridge.

Thanks Adam, but not this time. Anyway, only streetcars goes here....

Adam Elmquist on December 21, 2012

Not a problem Tomros I've been cutting back on the groups invites myself, accepting only on a limited basis. As for this photo the tracks and the catenary make the photo a splendid fit for the group. Streetcars, light rail, trolley, are all railways too, so a perfect fit for the North American Railroader group.. Merry Christmas.. Liked & Fav
