Smoke Trail Shows Bridge Route (Apr, 1933)
Smoke Trail Shows Bridge Route
SPECTATORS at the ground breaking ceremonies of the world’s largest suspension bridge which is soon to arise across the famous Golden Gate in San Francisco, were shown very plainly where the bridge would be located. Following the bridge route, a navy plane sped across the water, emitting a streak of smoke, showing just where the bridge would be erected.
The bridge is to cost $35,000,000 and will have one span over a mile long.
