This visual sourcebook surveys American bridges from coast to coast in terms of four fundamental structural types (beam, arch, truss, and suspension) and the special category of movable bridges (swing, lift, and bascule), showing how similar structural ideas have been addressed by different designers, refined over time, and rendered in various building materials.
