Then and Now – Binondo Canal Lift Bridge

From Tanawin: “The bridge over the Estero de Binondo in Manila is unique due to its ability to lift its platform from the ground to accommodate passing boats or cascos ... inaugurated in 1913 ... Spared from the destruction that befell most of colonial Manila during the Liberation, the Lift Bridge of Estero de Binondo was until recently the only link to both banks of the estero along Calle Dasmariñas until, its subsequent replacement by ... the standard concrete bridge.”
