Lsherm: Heh, I wrote a few papers about Roebling in college and knew when he died, but I didn't put THAT together.His prototype for the Brooklyn Bridge is still standing in Cincinnati/Newport, aptly named "The Roebling Bridge." I got a few good pictures of it back in the day:Roebling Bridge:[imagizer.imageshack.us image 800x600]Brooklyn Bridge:[imagizer.imageshack.us image 766x600]Similar construction, but the Brooklyn Bridge is more than twice as wide, twice as long, and it killed way more people during construction because of the water depth. Still, it's amazing this man has at least two bridges still standing after 150 years.
