When it says, "the draw on the Longfellow Bridge just upstream was closed in June 1904", do they mean the draw on the earlier West Boston Bridge? I don't think the Longfellow ever had a draw, and it wasn't even finished being built until 1906.

Great history lesson on Cambridge. I did not know it ever actually had an active commercial port. It explains the the Cambridgeport name to me.
