This lithograph by Dexter Dawes measures 11 5/8 x 15 1/4 inches, one in a series of lithographs of the construction of the George Washington Bridge that Dawes created between 1927 and the bridges' completion in 1931.

Considered by some to be the noblest of bridges it became a symbol of the art and craft of the civil engineering profession.
