The Great Bridge, by D McCullough

The Great Bridge, The epic study of the building of the Brooklyn Bridge
David McCullough

In the years around 1870, the concept of building a great bridge to span the East River between the great cities of New York and Brooklyn required a vision and determination comparable to that of the building of the Pyramids. Throughout the 14 years of construction , the odds against the successful completion of the bridge seemed staggering. Lives were lost, empires fell and public opinion constantly threatened the project. Mention of caisson disease.
