These are Kedge-style vintage Great Lakes iron anchors were used to secure a Bailey Bridge in Ontario. The Bailey Bridge is a type of Pontoon Bridge and was used for the first time in 1942. These early versions of the Bailey Bridge would use pontoons to support the bridge and keep those pontoons in place with iron anchors. These vintage anchors were used around 1945 until it was decided to construct a more permanent Bailey Bridge and they have been sitting in a warehouse ever since. Bailey Bridges were used frequently in World War II as they were easily portable and could support large amounts of weight such as an army’s infantry as well as their tanks.
This vintage iron anchor is a beautiful nautical piece in great condition. This anchor would make a great decoration piece for your personal or commercial use. You can set it outside on the lawn of your house, in front of your retail business, or at your dock/marina.
