Golden Gate Bridge

DVD - 2004
Rate this:
The Golden Gate Bridge is a vital artery for the city of San Francisco. The critics said it could never be built. The project looked impossible; the span of the bay was too wide; the shore was too unstable; and the tides too turbulent. Learn why engineer Joseph B. Strauss' plans proved to be a masterpiece of design and function. In four years, the longest, highest, most spectacular suspension bridge on Earth opened to the public, and went on to become one of the greatest symbols of American ingenuity.
