Taking 5 years to build, the 4,200-foot-long suspension bridge was an engineering marvel of its time - 11 men died during construction. The "international orange" color was chosen because it resisted rust and fading. To the present, it is the symbol of the City that is known throughout the world.

In 1942, at the age of just 15 years old, Alvis was alive when on November 28th at 10:15p, a nightclub in Boston, the Cocoanut Grove, caught fire.
