Suspension Bridge

what is it and how does it work?

The First Suspension Bridge Built

The first suspension bridge ever built is Brooklyn Bridge. Construction started in January,1870 and of course it was built in Brooklyn. The single greatest wonderment of the Brooklyn Bridge is not its size, beauty, function or even technology, but the fact that it was created by hand. When construction began, neither the light bulb nor the telephone (nor the jackhammer) had been invented. It is truly the Great Pyramid of bridges.
