Wallace Street footbridge - 1907 (or 1890). Frazer Matthews - Chief Engineer. Unchanged for more then century

The Wallace Avenue pedestrian bridge was built around 1907 or 1890(depending on whom you believe) and it connects the Wallace-Emerson neighbourhood to Dundas West.

This, very photogenic bridge looks exactly the same, as when it was build and is still very useful. Pedestrians are actually much faster then car going from this area across the railways, in this very confusing section of Toronto. Because of three railway lines and only few bridges, this is very important link to the other side!

Build from Scottish Lanarkshire Steel imported from across the ocean!!!

Frazer Matthews, Chief Engineer, Ontario Bridge Company, Built 1907

C.H. Rust, City Engineer; Listed on the City of Toronto’s Inventory of Heritage Properties (1997).
