Sunday Bridges - I Left My Heart In San Francisco
I’m going to trespass into Louis’ territory a little, if he doesn’t mind, and post this picture that I took during my visit to San Francisco last week.
I believe this is the Richmond-San Rafael aka Richmond aka San Rafael aka John F. McCarthy Memorial Bridge. We passed under it while taking the Vallejo Baylink Ferry back from Napa. I was outside on the back of the boat and didn’t hear the tour guide on the loudspeaker when he told us the name of this bridge.
The northernmost of the east-west Bay bridges, it is a toll bridge that opened in 1956 connecting Richmond on the east to San Rafael on the west. But don't quote me on that. If I've made an error I'm sure that someone will correct me. :-)
Please visit our friend Louis to see many more bridges from around the world!
