1:25k map from 1952, showing the bridge

Friday Bridge carried Summer Row, which was the A457 at the time, over the Newhall Branch Canal, in Birmingham.

The canal no longer exists, and nor does the bridge - the site where it stood is now buried underneath Paradise Circus. It is called Friday Bridge for the same reason the nearby Saturday Bridge was called Saturday Bridge - it was the day when canal workers received their wages at the bridge[1].
