Thursday, January 5, 1933

Had Science test today. This evening all of Raiferts came over and so did Ollie Gatlin and played cards.

*Construction begins on the Golden Gate Bridge spanning the entrance to San Francisco Bay. Because the Depression has dried up financing options, San Francisco-based Bank of America buys up the bonds to build the bridge. The Golden Gate Bridge officially opens on May 27, 1937, the longest bridge span in the world to date.
