The Tacoma Narrows Bridge opened to the public on 1 July 1940, construction having been completed in just one year and seven months. It had a span of 1810 metres, the third longest in the world at the time, and promised to bring great economic growth to the Kitsap Peninsula in the US state of Washington.

Nike has been around much longer than most would think and continues to be the leading trend setter in athletic wear. Nike was started in January of 1964. The athletic company began as just a small clothing distributing company out of the truck of Phil Knight’s, owner and CEO of Nikes, Car. The Saying you started from the bottom is very true when it comes to Nike who now leads in sales of all athletic gear compared to Adidas who at the time of 1964 was the most popular athletic company.
