Bay Bridge West Tower - sans road and cables c1935


This tower sure turned out well - with baited breath and the patience of Jobe, I look forward to seeing the new tower on the Eastern span rise...a new landmark and symbol of the gateway to the City by the Bay


The West Tower of the Bay Bridge rises to 281 feet, and its concrete anchorage was sunk 235 feet below the water line. Its total height is taller than that of the largest of the Pyramids of Egypt.
