Golden Gate Bridge

California's Gold, Episode #407

Iconic in its design, rich in color and vast in influence, the Golden Gate Bridge remains one of America’s most recognizable bridges. Huell explores the history behind the bridge, from when skeptics called it “a bridge that couldn’t be built” to it being one of California’s most magnificent engineered structures. Watch for a close look at the bridge’s construction and maintenance, and lasting legacy as a favorite California landmark.

Enjoyed your show. I have a book The Golden Gate Bridge that was given to my husbands Uncle E. R. Hamrick March 27h 1940 Complements of the Board of Directors of the Golden Gate Bridge and Highway District signed by W.W. Felt Secretary and a letter signed by Joseph B. Strauss, Chief Engineer and would like to know if there are a lot of these books out. Also have a lot of personal photos of the beginning of the building of the bridge. The book has all the plans and the invitation to attend the ceremonies in connection with opening of the Bridge to traffic on May 28, 1937 at ten o;clock a.m. at Crissy Field pesidio of San Francisco signed by directors, Engineers and officers. It has an embossed seal of the Golden Gate Bridge and Highway District. Thank You for all your interesting shows. Norma Hamrick
