"There had never been a bridge like the Golden Gate Bridge
and there had never been a job like the job of building it"
Some photos of the building of the Golden Gate Bridge from 1933-1937. The second photo is of a bridge worker named Ed Souza; whom I had the pleasure of meeting when I worked in Sausalito in the early nineties. He is featured in the CBS video (1983) below, about the builders of the bridge. A monumental achievement made by very brave men.
USS Iowa (BB-61), iconic WWII-era battleship, being towed out of San Francisco Bay on it's way to new home in Southern California. The Iowa earned nine battle stars for service in WWII and 2 battle stars for service in the Korean War. It is the last lead ship of any class of United States battleships. It will become a museum ship berthed in San Pedro, Ca.
