The Eastport Lift bridge is the industry's gateway to Hamilton. Crossing the gap in the spit of land that forms one of the great lakes' best natural harbours, it marks a vital place in Hamilton history. Most of the iron ore enroute to the steel mills passes under its span. Built in 1962, it is one of the last bridges constructed with lattice and rivets. The two green towers that hoist the platform up above the ships have such a wonderful pattern of gussets and rivets that we just had to model our pedestal table after it.
