At the end of Shoreline Park is a short pier jutting out into the bay. It seems to have been designed specifically for fishing. This photo was taken from that spot yesterday. This is the Oakland Bay Bridge, built in less that 4 years and inaugurated in 1936. It is a double deck bridge with SF bound traffic on the top level. The better known Golden Gate Bridge was completed seven months later. Both are engineering marvels. A fascinating account of the construction of both bridges can be found in High Steel published in 1979. For more theme day photos Click here to view thumbnails for all participants.
