Not everyone can say they have a little Golden Gate bridge, but Larry Richardson is one of a kind. Let’s find out more about this functional work of art, shall we?
Larry and Barbara Richardson had been fascinated by the Golden Gate bridge for years and had always wanted to see it up close. Well, it turns out that building one in their backyard is the next best thing.

This video by YouTube user Larry Hatteburg really highlights the dream they had and what you can achieve with a little bit of money and a dream. If you’re wanting to check out the bridge yourself, I’d recommend getting in touch with Larry Richardson, since it’s on his private property.
