An exhibit entitled "Bridging Two Continents", which contains a photographic history of the construction of the Bosphorus and Fatih Sultan Mehmet bridges, which link the European side of Istanbul to the Asian side over the Bosphorus Strait, opened on Thursday at Istanbul's Rahmi M. Koç Museum.
The exhibit, which runs until June 29, 2014 consists of photographs, documents and objects from the private archives of bridge designing engineer Dr. William Brown, which document the building process of Istanbul's two monumental bridges that cross over the Bosphorus. The collection, compiled by Celia Brown, the wife of Dr. William Brown who worked on the design and building processes of both bridges, also contains documents from the Highways General Directorate archives and a cable compactor machine used by Japanese firm IHI Infrastructure Systems during the bridges' construction. The exhibition also sheds light on the significant transformation the Istanbul metropolis has undergone over the past 40 years.
