Comes with this description: "A hearty cheer went up from the citizens and laborers on May 24, 1883 when the East River Suspension Bridge (or “Brooklyn Bridge” as it is commonly known) was finally opened to traffic. The building of the bridge took thirteen years and encountered numerous obstacles including the death of principal Architect John Roebling, decompression sickness in the mighty caissons, and the near-daily assaults by Rosie, the East River Monster."
