Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Close enough! This is the Rt 127 drawbridge known locally as the "Cut Bridge". The "Cut" is actually the Blynman Canal which was dug in 1643 to connect Gloucester harbor with the Annisquam River. The Blynman Canal/Annisquam River connects Gloucester to Ipswich Bay at the other (North) end and allows boaters to avoid the trip around Cape Ann. It is a rather scenic passage for boats that draw 5' or less.

Your turn, Down.
