1914, July 4

Gilbert Bridge, begun in 1912, is inaugurated over the Laoag River, connecting San Nicolas to Laoag; it is named after Vice Governor Newton W. Gilbert who obtained funding for the bridge. (All concrete was mixed and placed by hand, the work being done largely by women; they also handled all the sand and gravel.) [Henry]
