The new eastern span of the Bay Bridge will open in October 2013 and beloved Chronicle author Donald MacDonald is its architect. McDonald and coauthor Ira Nadel now turn their signature charming approach onto this new Bay Area landmark. In friendly text and charming illustrations, this bijou volume details the original bridge's history and the new bridge's design and construction. In the same elegant package as Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz, this book rounds out our collection with MacDonald and Nadel and brings San Francisco devotees and tourists another lovely souvenir.
