Laborfest: Golden Gate Bridge Walk
Date Sunday July 11
Time 12:00 PM - 4:00 PM
Location Details
Meet at Strauss Statue - in the visitors’ plaza. Buses 28, 76
Since no large group can walk together, we will take tour in many groups throughout the time, and the last group will leave at 4:30 PM.
Event Type Teach-In
Tour lead by Mike Daly (Ironworkers 377), Linda Cahill (City Guides), plus representatives of the bridge painters and ironworkers
Although other bridges are now taller and longer than this 1930’s icon, the Golden Gate Bridge remains the most recognized structure in the world behind the Eiffel Tower. Learn why the bridge was so hard to build, how it changed the building of bridges around the world and what today’s bridge workers face as they maintain the world’s largest sculpture. This unique tour combines historical content from City Guides with a walk on the world’s most famous bridge led by its very own iron workers and painters.
