Happy 75th Birthday, Golden Gate Bridge

In 1933, the Standard Oil Company sent employee Ted Huggins to photograph the bridge's construction. Huggins visited the site weekly for three years and produced hundreds of photographs, which he offered to news outlets covering the project. Huggins took this picture on the bridge's opening day on May 27, 1937. (Image credit: Ted Huggins/Chevron Corporation)
