Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
The Golden Gate Bridge construction photographs were taken between 1933 and 1934. Some of the 2,054 photographs are stamped "Gabriel Moulin Photo." The other photographers are unknown. The collection is a thorough documentation of every phase of construction of the bridge, including excavation of sites, and building of the various components, such as access trestles, caissons, abutments, anchorages, pylons, floor structures, approach spans, piers, towers, portals, viaducts, tunnels, and the toll plaza. Many views show men at work, and the tools and equipment being used. Vantage points vary from the bridge structures, from the water, Marin, San Francisco, and Sausalito.
1,066 photographic prints, black and white; 13 x 19 cm. 373 digital objects
