    Yep all suits not an honest working man among 'em :-)

    Well, maybe that one guy with a working-man's cap and the bow tie. And the old geezer in the front, but I'll bet he's the original Mr. Mesta...

    The longest suspension bridge in the world until ~1981.
    It had a nickname that would not be proper these days.

    Really? What's wrong with the "Very Narrow Zano's Bridge"? PC enough for me.
    And the spelling, a second 'z', wasn't corrected until 2018. May have been other search returns, YMMV.
