Happy Birthday, Golden Gate Bridge!
The Golden Gate Bridge has been a landmark of San Francisco since its completion in 1937. The love affair with the bridge started prior to it even being built. It was desperately needed to alleviate the traffic from the ferries. Despite the Great Depression, the areas surrounding San Francisco voted and passed the bond measure to pay for the bridge by using their homes and businesses as collateral.
May 27th, 2012, marks the 75th anniversary of the Golden Gate Bridge.
