Summary

The Golden Gate Bridge is an icon of one of the most storied of American cities, San Francisco. Standing between the Bay and the mighty Pacific like a guardian of the West, the Golden Gate retains its grip on the American imagination long after its twenty-seven-year record of being the longest suspension bridge in the world was superseded.

Featuring a selection of stunning images of the Bridge, many from angles and positions that show it in a whole new light, The Golden Gate: San Francisco's Celebrated Bridge showcases the acclaimed photography of San Francisco native, Morton Beebe. Complementing Beebe's photographs is a short history of the bridge and memorable quotes from a variety of San Francisco natives and visitors affected by the its imposing presence, illustrating the firm grip this near-mythic structure has on our collective imagination.
