Happy Birthday, Golden Gate Bridge

Tuesday, May 27th, 2003 · 2 Comments

GGbridgecoversmall.jpg Sixty-six years ago today — May 27, 1937 — the Golden Gate Bridge opened to foot traffic. One year and one day later — May 28, 1938 — the bridge opened to vehicular traffic. Back in 1987, when the bridge celebrated its 50th anniversary, my Dad was on hand to cover it (he was then a columnist for the Marin IJ).

To this day, people come from around the world to awe at this engineering masterpiece stretching beautifully and majestically across the Bay. I’m fortunate enough to drive across the breathtaking national landmark twice per day as part of my daily commute.

Happy Birthday, Golden Gate Bridge.

    Not only a great landmark, but a good memorial to all of those who lost their lives trying to build that thing.
