The Golden Gate Bridge 75th Anniversary
The Golden Gate Bridge 75th Anniversary May 27, 2012!
Did you know?
Before the bridge was built, the only practical short route between San Francisco and what is now Marin County was by boat across a section of San Francisco Bay. Ferry service began as early as 1820, with regularly scheduled service beginning in the 1840s for purposes of transporting water to San Francisco!
