Lake Shore Boulevard Bailey Bridge is one of just two bailey bridges remaining in Toronto. It was erected in 1952 (some say 1947[1]) but dates back to World War II when it was manufactured for the British Army.[2] It is used as a pedestrian bridge to connect Exhibition Place to the waterfront south of Lake Shore Boulevard.[2]

This type of bridge was used to allow visitors to the Canadian National Exhibition to walk to waterfront activities in saftey.[1]

It was erected by the Hydro-Electric Power Commission of Ontario using steel supplied by the Dominion Bridge Company and was renovated during 1998.[2]
