The Bridges of King County Through the Lens of T. P. Blum: 1931 - 1934

Suspension Bridges

A suspension bridge’s rigid deck is hung from vertical suspenders that are attached to a horizontal cable, rope or other material in tension, and then attached between towers in compression. Suspension bridges are particularly suited for spanning long distances.
