The Ambassador Bridge: A Monument to Progress
Men of courage, faith, and ingenuity made the dream of a Detroit/Windsor bridge a reality. Author Philip Mason traces the history of the Ambassador Bridge from an early proposal for a seasonal bridge to be erected each winter to the construction of the present structure. Documented with historic illustrations and photographs, the book highlights the lives of the men who guided the fortunes of the bridge through the Great Depression, World War II, and numerous other crises.
Included is a list of bridge statistics, detailing general dimensions, steelwork and stone specifications, and a chronology of the bridge's construction.
