The Tacoma Narrows Bridge(s) Click to continue…
The original Tacoma Narrows Bridge was built between November 1938 and July 1, 1940
November 7, 1940 Professor Farquharson was there to witness and document the spectacular collapse of what had been the third longest suspension bridge in the world with the longest single span in the country. In the aftermath many theories were discussed concerning the cause of the bridge's collapse. Ultimately an investigative board for the Washington State Toll Bridge Authority announced the failure was due to the bridge's design reacting to the wind in the Narrows
