Golden Gate Bridge Construction

The Construction of the Golden Gate Bridge began on the 5th of January 1933, with the official opening on may 27th 1937, the festivities lasting for a whole week. Surprisingly the project completed ahead of schedule and $1.3 Million under budget, with the total cost being $35 Million. It still amazes me when I look at older projects like this and the level of engineering required to complete them.
