Description: PAUL FORSTER (DATES UNKNOWN) SAN FRANCISCO OAKLAND / BAY BRIDGE CELEBRATION. 1936.
23x16 inches, 58 1/2x40 1/2 cm. Security Lithograph Co., San Francisco.
Condition A / A-: minor creases and restoration in margins and lower image.
The eight and one-quarter mile long Bay Bridge in San Francisco opened for traffic on November 12, 1936, three years after construction began. The four-day celebration that accompanied the opening was an enormous and impressive social undertaking, worthy of the unparalleled engineering feat. The festivities included speeches by such dignitaries as former President Herbert Hoover, parades, military pageants, football games, riverboat races, a massed flight of Navy aircraft, a yacht regatta and much more. This image was also used on the cover of the official program. This is the smaller format.
