Spanning the Gate is a fascinating book with breathtaking photos of the Golden Gate Bridge under construction. There are many interesting personal annecdotes about the people involved with building the bridge, both engineers and workmen. The book contains some really surprising information about the bridge, such as how the cable was "spun" and the fact that the pieces of the towers were actually made in the east and thus had to be transported by ship to San Francisco through the Panama Canal! This really surprised me!

This is indeed an excellent book, overflowing with wonderful photographs, some of them quite breathtaking. The text is fascinating to read. It's also highly informative yet never dull or overly technical. Anyone interested in the construction of this amazing bridge, or the construction of the 'great bridges' around the world would enjoy reading this fine work. I am proud to have it in my personal library.
