Celebrating ingenuity, invention and imagination brought to life on a grand scale, MODERN MARVELSĀ® tells the fascinating stories of the doers, dreamers and sometime-schemers who created everyday items, technological breakthroughs and man-made wonders.From the days of the Gold Rush, there were dreams of linking San Francisco to the East Bay, but the waters of San Francisco Bay seemed too deep, and the distance too great.MODERN MARVELSĀ® details how, in 1926, California State Highway Engineer Charles C. Purcell was named to make the dream a reality. The solution he came up required anchoring two bridges to a massive support in the middle of the Bay, which itself would be secured to bedrock some 100 feet below the bottom of the Bay. In the decades since, the bridge has weathered earthquakes and the changing demands of a growing region, and remains a vital part of the Bay Area's infrastructure.MODERN MARVELSĀ® crosses the bridge with the men and women charged with making sure it stays that way for the foreseeable future.
