The Golden Gate Bridge - four years from conception to completion and it's still standing, even though the designers and builders didn't have the "state-of-the-art" technology we have today.
If it was being built today, it would probably take twenty years and have to be retrofitted after another ten.
It's very fortunate that we Californians had ancestors who actually knew how to do things.
