Sub-Net

Sorry, there are no airings at this time. Please check this page for future updates.

It's huge, made of metal, and reaches across the Golden Gate, but it's not a bridge. Join Huell as he visits the site of the WWII antisubmarine net built to keep Japanese subs out of San Francisco. Long before the Tiburon Sub-Net Depot was there, this small piece of land across the bay from San Francisco had many incarnations. It was home to Native Americans, an original Spanish Ranchero, the largest Codfish drying plant on the west coast, a coaling station for the navy, and where the cables for the Golden Gate Bridge were spun. In fact, if you look closely at low tide, you can still see them.
