Blast From the Past — 1931

The Golden Gate Bridge District was still tied up in court in 1931 and plans to abandon constructing the bridge were underway. A less expensive alternative—in the minds of some civic leaders—was a bridge from Marin to Goat Island (now known as Yerba Buena Island), where it would join up with the proposed state bridge connecting Oakland and San Francisco.

On a personal note, I’m so happy that this idea did not pan out.

    Anyone who has crossed the GGB in sunshine and then in fog would have to agree with you.
