We often take buildings, statues and bridges for granted without realizing the work, engineering and manpower it takes to build such amazing structures. It often amazes me that many of our famous landmarks were built so long before the technology we have available today.  It seems as though the technology and seemingly ease in which these structures are completed now cause us to lose appreciation for projects completed before computers and modern technology.  Here are some famous landmarks that you might appreciate more once you see what went into the construction of these beautiful monuments!
