Die Eisenbahnbrücke über die Aare bei Busswyl auf der Berner Staatsbahn zwischen Bern und Biel. Zürich : Meyer & Zeller, . Folio (46,5 x 30,0 cm)
One of the 20th century's leading bridge-builders was born a scant three kilometers away from the Iron Library. Othmar Ammann, who was born in Feuerthalen in 1879, emigrated to the United States in 1904, where he became the "father of the largest bridges of New York City" and one of the most influential bridge engineers. Among his achievements, he was consulting engineer for the construction of the Golden Gate Bridge in 1937 and responsible for planning the spectacular Varrazano Narrows bridge in New York in 1964.
