This aerial view of the Golden Gate Bridge would have been familiar to many of the brave men who helped construct the landmark in the late 1930s. Bridge construction took just over four years and strong wind gusts sometimes created perilous conditions. To safeguard the workers, a safety net was installed. It saved the lives of some 19 men who fell from the bridge and became known as members of the ‘Half Way to Hell Club.’
