How they built the Golden Gate Bridge

I recently came across a French Web site with a number of very interesting photographs showing the construction of the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco from 1933-37. Here are a few examples.

There are many more pictures at the link; and if you open each one to full size in a new window or tab, most are much larger than the reduced-size images reproduced here. They make very interesting viewing.

And painting it is a FULL TIME job, it's never finished... When they get done, it's time to go back and start over! Friend's dad worked 40 years painting that bridge and he had quite a few stories...
