Description:
This image shows a toll bridge connecting Rouses Point, New York and Alburg, Vermont across Lake Champlain. The bridge is made of wood and steel. There is a man in front of a stop sign at the start of the bridge standing under a striped awning. He is wearing pants, a shirt, a tie, and a hat. He is standing in front of a building with a tin roof. In front of the house is a sign that says "Rate of Toll" and lists prices for various vehicles, including "Horse & Cattle, Bicycles, Teams & Saddle Horses." The bridge is a swing bridge that is movable, and allowed navigation in two channels. This information comes from "Crossings, A History of Vermont Bridges" by Robert McCullough.
