Building the Bay Bridge: Then and Now

Building the Bay Bridge: Then and Now



An earlier post talked about photographer Peter Stackpole’s  documentation of the building of the Bay Bridge. His black and white photos of the Bay Bridge construction process, taken between 1933-1936,  are currently on display at the Oakland Museum.

Meanwhile, across the bay, the SFO Museum is showcasing the stunning aerial photos of the construction of the new east span of the Bay Bridge as seen from the cockpit of Barrie Rokeach’s Cessna. Rokeach is a local pilot and aerial photographer who does both commercial and fine art work. One of his images was recently chosen to be featured as a US stamp. So give yourself some extra time at the airport if you find yourself at SFO within the next few weeks. Rokeach’s Bay Bridge shots will be shown through November 2013.
