This was when the swing bridge would open so that large boats and tug boats would pass, pulling large barges and logs for the export market. One of the boats looks like the "Patricia", one of the old customs boats.

Today it is commonly known as the Swing Bridge. However, in my boyhood days it was popularly known as BIG BRIDGE. The reason for this was because it was the biggest bridge in the city. The only other bridges in the city were the ones over the canals. There were no Belcan Bridge, Belchina Bridge or Chetumal St. Bridge.
