Here's a picture from when it was first built
Comparing that to a more recent photo from a similar angle creates a perfect snapshot of modern industrial and economic growth.
There are plenty of other fun Brooklyn Bridge photos like this one from when it used to have trains running across or, always my favorite, the ones with construction workers nonchalantly sitting on the suspension wires like this:
I highly recommend taking a look at the BB's Wikipedia page, lots of interesting facts.

This is probably my favorite post on this blog thus far, and I should know, I've read all your posts. I adore Brooklyn and I think the Brooklyn Bridge is the most beautiful bridge, I love it. All the pictures you used were beautiful and amazing, although I think you should have shown us the snowy train track photo. Also, I find it hard to believe that those fellows are construction workers - they're wearing suits!
Anyway, another interesting, witty, and exceedingly well-written post by Sir PQ.
Good job :)

I should probably add in to this post that the bridge stands about 28 stories tall at its highest point.
