Looks so much like the High Level Bridge, viaduct, in Lethbridge, that I had to check! I guess the Lethbridge one, appearing of similar design, has the distinction of being the largest! I used to live in Lethbridge but did no photography at the time. Some day a return to Alberta is warranted for some serious image making!
