Location: Rideau Canal, Ottawa - Canada

Skaters pass under the Pretoria Brige on the Rideau Canal Skateway.

When this bridge was built in 1915, it replaced an earlier wooden swing bridge on Argyle Street just to the north. It is a vertical-lift bridge, meaning that the central portion of the bridge can be elevated to allow boats to pass underneath.
