The Humber Bay Arch Bridge is a pedestrian and bicycle bridge south of Lake Shore Boulevard West in Toronto. It connects the former municipalities of "Old Toronto" and Etobicoke (both now part of the amalgamated City of Toronto) along an ancient aboriginal trading route along the shore of Lake Ontario. On each of its four lower level buttresses, largely concealed from public view, is a large metal inset depicting a serpent - a recurring symbol in the ancient mystery religions, much of the teaching of which was incorporated into Masonry.

Location: Etobicoke, Ontario, Canada
