The bridge was built by the People's Bridge Company as a low-cost alternative to the Camelback Bridge, which no longer exists but which was built in 1816 and for almost a century enjoyed a monopoly on traffic across the Susquehanna. The river here heads to the left, downstream to Chesapeake Bay, which is the name given to the river's flooded lower reach. Although the river looks like a pool ponded by a dam, it's flowing and mightier even than it looks, because that land on the far side is City Island. Agnes took out part of the bridge crossing the channel on the other side.
