Happy 70th Golden Gate Bridge


Interesting comments from current employees of the bridge including:

“People in Corvettes are very snotty,” she said. “I hate to say that, but it’s true. They don’t give you the time of day.”


Forest “Woody” Becker said working on the bridge is “about the greatest job an ironworker can have. It’s a great icon, and it’s real security.” He is proud to have designed camera mounts for the bridge and recently created a mold to make zinc castings used on suspender ropes. Becker first saw the Golden Gate in August 1964. “I was in the Navy, heading to Vietnam aboard the USS Ranger. Then I saw it 10 months later. It welcomed me home. I’ll never forget it. “
