The Golden Gate Bridge snuggles under a fleecy blanket of fog as day breaks over San Francisco. It was built by Joseph B. Strauss, a specialist in steel-bridge design who had built 400 bridges all over the world. The name came from the fact that the Golden Gate Strait is the entrance into San Francisco Bay from the Pacific Ocean.
