This is a great graphical image of a police parade crossing the famous Golden Gate Bridge, not long after it opened for traffic in 1936. The construction had cost a whopping 77 million dollars but it was a great accomplishment in human engineering. There's enormous depth in the image and the strong lines of the bridge seem to accentuate the structure of the well-organized SFPD in the 1930s. The content as well at the aesthetics of this photograph are what makes it so unique.

This is an original silver gelatin print taken in the 1940's.
