New Video: How the Golden Gate Bridge Became an Icon

The Golden Gate Bridge is one of the City’s great icons. It all happened by accident, according to a new video just posted by the San Francisco Chronicle. The video runs just over a minute and half long, and it tells a pretty remarkable story.

It turns out we’re lucky to have the bridge at all, let alone one as beautiful as it is. Early proposals looked pretty hideous!
