An innovative landmark a quarter century in the making, the
new eastern span of the San Francisco–Oakland Bay Bridge
represents the latest spectacular chapter in the history of this
storied structure. The new bridge’s architect, Donald Mac-
Donald, teams up with author Ira Nadel to create this illuminating
book. With friendly text and charming illustrations,
Bay Bridge reveals the design decisions that have shaped
the evolution of the bridge over the last century—from the
history of the original bridge, through the planning of the
new span, to the construction of its signature 525-foot-high
white tower. In the same elegant package as Golden Gate
Bridge and Alcatraz, this volume makes a lovely souvenir
for San Francisco devotees, architecture buffs, and tourists.
