The arched stone bridge carrying Old Mill Road over the Humber River has stood in place since 1916, but it was the first bridge built on site. There has been a bridge spanning the Humber River in this location ever since 1837, the same year as the historically significant Upper Canada Rebellion. The current bridge is located in Etienne Brulé Park, the site of multiple mills over the course of Toronto's history, including Toronto’s first industrial building, King’s Mill, built in 1793, which was the source of the wood used in the construction of Fort York and various other early Toronto buildings. In today's Photo of the Day, submitted to the UrbanToronto Flickr Pool by Andrew S Illingworth, we are presented with a long-exposure shot of the 1916 stone arch bridge spanning the Humber River.
