Aerial Bridge: Structural Details, End View, Part Side Elevation, Duluth, Minnesota

Detailed drawing of four parts of the Aerial Bridge. The end view is a drawing of a tower; part side elevation is of half of the Aerial Bridge with the suspended car transfer. The third drawing is called Section A-A and depicts a tower without the cross structures drawn in. The last drawing is called Section B-B, which is a top down view of one of the towers resting on its footings. All of these drawings have dimensions. The part side elevation includes a very small drawing of the side of the gondola car. The end view includes the phrase “car approaches built by city.” The finials are shown on three of the four drawings. Drawing H5421, Sheet 2.
