76. Golden Gate Bridge from Marin County


Dear Pierre,

Sixty years earlier than the Erasmus Bridge in Rotterdam,
the San Francisco Golden Gate Bridge was finished in
1937 and painted in orange vermilion.
Both bridges seems to follow the evolution of species as
far as structural design is concern. On the other hand,
orange is the national color of the Netherlands.
A sort of prefiguration, isn't it?

Best
R
