10 of 56: "So I shall never forget the day I first set foot on the Bay Bridge catwalk...nothing but a little wire mesh and a lot of open air between me and the bay below. The worst aspect was not being able to show any fear. Those steelworkers were merciless, and to preserve our self-respect we had to act nonchalant and follow along, walking those beams and planks, climbing though small holes and hanging by our teeth even though our clothes were drenched with cold sweat."- Arthur L. Elliot, Engineer. (Photo courtesy baybridgeinfo.org) (KGO Photo)
