Joseph Strauss & his Golden Gate Bridge

San Francisco, California

Postcard 1017

Greetings from San Francisco, It's rare to have a fog free day in San Francisco, but I got lucky on this day. On the San Francisco side of the Golden Gate Bridge you can find this statue of the bridge's chief engineer and his story of overcoming hardships to build it. One of the most interesting parts of the story was his concern over the safety of the bridge builders. To keep his workers safe he insisted on installing a net beneath the construction of the bridge. The net ended up saving 19 lives. Jason
