The Beginning of the Golden Gate Bridge

Construction on the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco began on January 5, 1933. It opened for pedestrians on May 27, 1937, and for vehicles the next day, which makes it 78 years old. For most of those years, it was the longest suspension bridge in the world. Eleven men died during construction, ten of them in one accident when a platform collapsed. CNN has a slideshow of photographs from the building of the bridge and its grand opening ceremonies. -via Daily of the Day
