The Towers of Golden Gate Bridge
Clip: Season 16 | 2m 38s
The first 745-foot tower began to rise in Nov. 1933. Prefabricated sections were fit into place and then joined together by four-man rivet gangs. The heater was the boss; he brought rivets to the right temperature on a small forge, then tossed them to catchers with metal cans.
