About 25 years ago I bought a video tape showing the construction of the Tyne Bridge with some unbelievable scenes of men taking dangers in their stride or should I say "shuffle" Unfortunately, I had been unable to find this video and was disappointed not to be able to add to Bill Wallace's excellent article. I have now found this same video on Youtube. Watch some of the most incredible daily tasks when men walked along steel cables high above ground and river wearing nothing but a cloth cap for protection. See others dangling from "sky hooks" without any means of safety at all - except their cloth caps.
