1st Narrows Bridge

Item is a color film which details the steps involved in constructing the Lions Gate Bridge (First Narrows Bridge) across the First Narrows of the Burrard Inlet (Vancouver, B.C.) in 1937 and 1938. The film, which appears to be professionally produced, captures the entire construction and assembly process, including the cutting of a road through Stanley Park, preparation of cofferdams and caissons, foundation pouring, erection of the main towers, hoisting and attaching cables, insertion of stiffening trusses, bridge surface pouring, application of protective paint, and other finishing touches, including the installation of sculptor Charles Marega's lions. The film also captures shots of key contributors A.J.T. Taylor and John Anderson, as well as the first cars to cross the span from end to end.
