"A silent documentary film demonstrating from start to finish the construction of the Lions' Gate Bridge in Vancouver, British Columbia. The technical specifications of the bridge are described in detail through intertitles. This bridge has the longest suspended span in the British Empire. The intertitles detail the dimensions of the structure and materials used for construction. Images show the bridge as a work in progress, with shots of labourers, foremen, and consulting engineers working on the job site."
