Photographer's Note

Photo of the Golden Gate Bridge and Fort Point, the only civil war era brick fort on the west coast of the United States. Originally, the fort was to be eliminated with construction of the bridge since it was situated where the south cable anchorage was designed to rest. However, chief engineer Joseph Strauss saved the fort by anchoring the cable in the cliff behind the fort and constructing a steel arch which spans above the fort.
