Timeless Images Around the Golden Gate

July 28, 2012

In coordination with the 75th anniversary of the GoldenGate bridge, the SFMoMA has been posting various selections of photographs and artworks from their collection. The photographs in particular catalogue a history and evolution of the landscape around the famous bridge, some even revealing the bridge in construction. Here are some of the amazing shots of San Francisco over the years.
