Brooklyn Bridge under construction – picture of the day at the Guardian Unlimited.

A photographic highlight selected by the picture desk. The Brooklyn Bridge opened on this day in 1883 linking the two New York boroughs of Manhattan and Brooklyn.

Two men stand on a high catwalk, surveying the construction of the Brooklyn Bridge, with Manhattan in the background. Large ships and ferries sit in docks in the East River.

Yes, I fiddled with the photo before posting it. I imagine the original photographer might have also done so – given today’s hardware and software.
