This photo came from the Great Lakes Dredge and Dock Company which had a yard and office on the Calumet River at approximately 92nd Street near Turning Basin Number 1. The company has been in business for over 130 years and specializes in marine projects including dredging, bridges, shoreline protection, and land reclamation. It did a number of projects over the years on the Southeast Side including land filling operations for the Iroquois Iron (later Youngstown Steel) plant as well as preparing and moving the U-505 German submarine to the Museum of Science and Industry. There is no information available on the bridge wreckage in this shot.
