History

‘On this day’

May 27th 1937 – The ‘Golden Gate Bridge’ in San Francisco was officially opened.

The ‘Golden Gate Bridge’ is a famous landmark in San Francisco, a city on the west coast of the United States of America. It is a suspension bridge. This means that the roadway is hung or suspended from thick steel cables. These cables stretch from one end of the bridge to the other. They are held high in the air by two tall towers. The towers stand on piers. The bridge took four years to build.  When it was finished, it was the longest bridge in the world.  Today, there are several bridges that are longer, but the ‘Golden Gate’ is still one of the most famous bridges in the world.

Question Time:

1) Where is San Francisco located?

2) What type of bridge is the ‘Golden Gate’?
