North Bridge, George Street, Hull
An electrically-operated, Scherzer-type bascule bridge, one of the city's eclectic collection of bridges. Built in 1928-31 by T. Thomas, City Engineeer. Grade II listed.
A bascule is a fancy term for a drawbridge (e.g. Tower Bridge), while a Scherzer "does not pivot about a hinge point, but rolls back on curved tread plates attached to the girders of the main span" (Wikipedia). A side-on view is more instructive TA1029 : River Hull, Hull (3). See also a close-up of the mechanism: TA1029 : North Bridge, Hull (detail)
