The rail link between Tianjin and Nanjing’s Pukou district－the Tientsin-Pukow Railw
ay－was completed in 1912. But the two lines could not be connected because there was no bridge across the river.
According to the Academy of Sociology, which was founded by scholars from Nanjing Univers
ity, at least two structures－the Wuhan Yangtze River Bridge and the Chongqing Baishatuo Yangtze
River Bridge－were built before the Nanjing structure. But neither was considered a landmark by the public.
