"Galloping Gertie" In Colour

Thanks to Neatorama for this colour video of the ill-fated Tacoma Narrows Bridge.

It contains much more footage than any other film I've ever seen of the event.

It's truly amazing to watch how the asphalt and concrete bends and stretches, without breaking, for such a long time.

I was also fascinated by the couple of people you can see walking off the bridge in quite a calm, relatively unhurried manner.
