Bridge building in Iran. Bridge over the Karun river 1950's

People on a boat. A car on a cable transporter. The building of the bridge. Men working on the bridge. The whole process of the building is revealed from the building of the brick supports to the cabling of the steel structure into place bit by bit, until they meet in the middle. Shuttering for the road is winched across and concrete laid. Spectators at the opening of the road. Man makes a speech. A local male worker in overalls does a traditional dance in celebration. The bridge is open. Sheep are herded acros and a truck drives over the bridge.
