Description:
The Water Street Bridge crosses over Trout Creek in St. Marys. The steel through-truss bridge was built in 1898 by Stratford Bridge and Iron Works. The bridge was designed by local architect Joseph Humphris who was responsible for designing many houses in St. Marys and several notable buildings including Westover and the Carnegie Library. Milt Dunnell Field or "The Flats" can be seen behind the bridge to the right. A rehabilitation project was completed on the Water Street Bridge in 2016.

In the winter and early spring of 1982-1983, Randall Speller, a colleague of Larry Pfaff from the Art Gallery of Ontario, took a series of black and white photographs of architecturally significant structures in St. Marys. Larry Pfaff and several local friends who shared this interest in architecture took some additional photographs in a subsequent summer. This photograph is one of this series.
