Bay Bridge as a Promotional Tool =>


In 2006, the California State Archives received a significant collection of memorabilia related to California bridges and, in particular, the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge. Margaret Monroe, a retired Caltrans worker, donated the material so that the public, beyond just her friends and family, could enjoy the artifacts, flyers, postcards, textiles, and publications that she had collected over the years. She developed her great interest in the bridge in part from working near the bridge and as well as working with the bridge's toll inspectors.
