The Golden Bridge and the American city of San Francisco are intertwined. The Golden Revolution took place in San Francisco in the early nineteenth century, and people flocked to the city in the hope of making money. Right after that comes the era of automobiles and the city has become a city that is rich, employed, convenient for workers. They had to cross the San Francisco Bay to go from Marin County to San Francisco. So at that time the ferry service appeared here. However, it was not possible for them to handle the pressure. As a result, jams were made here all the time. As a result, ordinary people are at a loss for both work and livelihood. The need came for a bridge but at that time it was like a mad delirium. But the thought did not stop. The idea was to build a 3,000-foot suspension bridge that cost 100 million at the time. But looking for someone to make it at such a low cost. It was at this point that Joseph Strauss came forward. He gave a budget of only 25-30 million dollars. It was also expensive for the twentieth century America, but the local people came together and stood up for it. Overcoming all obstacles, Bank of America finally became interested in this project.







Considering the overall development and the public, he started work on this 2300 feet bridge. The work of the bridge of dreams of the American people began. Which held the record for the longest suspension bridge in the world for 26 years and still stands today with its head held high. The bridge cost about মিল 35 million to build. The bridge connects San Francisco and Marin County across the San Francisco Bay. The total length of the bridge is about 1.6 miles. And it’s a total of 90 feet wide on the side. The bridge stands at an altitude of 230 meters above sea level. The bridge has two towers on one side, one in the water, the other in the dry and with the help of two cables. When people imagined such an installation in the 1930s, the bridge was built with the conviction of the impossible engineers and thousands of workers to make the impossible possible. The bridge was opened to traffic in 1938 after completion of work. Which has been carrying thousands of cars every day for 60 years without any rest. And has established the mail bond of the people on both sides.
