The Golden Gate Bridge is a suspension bridge spanning the Golden Gate, the opening of the San Francisco Bay into the Pacific Ocean. The structure is one of the most internationally recognized symbols of San Francisco, California, and of the United States. It has been declared one of the modern Wonders of the World by the American Society of Civil Engineers.
It was designed and built by Joseph Strauss who has been described as an ambitious but dreamy engineer and poet.
I wonder if he ever dreamed of this convergence of pipes and poles and wires I found in my neighborhood.
