  • Watch the 1935 opening of Tower Bridge in Sacramento

    A film titled '"Gay ceremony marks opening of a huge bridge" shows a large crowd gathered to witness the opening of Tower Bridge over the Sacramento River on Dec. 18, 1935. California Governor Frank Merriam (1934-1939) presides over the ceremony. Cars pass over the bridge and balloons are released in the air to mark the occasion.
