In 1919, a study was begun to see if it would be possible to build a bridge across the Golden Gate. Michael O’Shaughnessy was the San Francisco city engineer. He was in charge of the rebuilding of the city after the devastating 1906 earthquake that destroyed much of the city. O’Shaughnessy knew the need for the city to have bridges. Most said it could not be done and others said it could be done but “it would cost about $100 million to build it” (Barter 23). O’Shaughnessy and Strauss, both wanting the same thing, got together. After the two consulted, they figured the only way to bridge the channel was to use a suspension bridge.

The Brooklyn bridge was a paragon of the forward thinking invention that was developed during the industrial revolution. A man named John Augustus Roebling was appointed as the chief engineer of the Brooklyn Bridge. His plan for the bridge was approved in 1869 and the construction of the bridge started a year later on January 3, 1870. In 1883 it took $15.5 million dollars (around $379,661,000 dollars today) and 600 workers to construct the bridge. Out of the 600 workers, at least 20 of them died during the construction of the Brooklyn Bridge, including Roebling himself. After 13 years of construction, the Brooklyn Bridge was finally opened for use on May 24, 1883.
