We should all look this good at we approach our 80th birthday. 79 years ago on Friday a party kicked off to mark the opening of the Golden Gate Bridge.
San Francisco’s never been the same.
Beautiful, exhilarating and instantly famous, the Golden Gate Bridge is no doubt San Francisco’s most photographed landmark. You know every curve of its architecture, but there are plenty of eerie and fascinating facts about the bridge you probably didn’t know.
Like, for instance, the first child lost on the bridge was 11-year-old Anna Marie Anderson, who got separated from her family on May 27, 1937, the first day the bridge was open to pedestrian traffic. Don’t worry; she was reunited with her family.
