Golden Gate Bridge Cable Cross-Section - San Francisco, California - Photo

Shown next to my lovely assistant for scale, this is what a main suspension cable from the Golden Gate Bridge looks like in cross-section. The steel for the cables was supplied, at least originally by the Roebling Wire Rope Company. Roebling (father and son) was the last name of the builders of the Brooklyn Bridge (and the name of the dorm I lived in my freshman year of college which they donated).
