Details Additional Information Framing Details

The Golden Gate and Bridge from Baker Beach, San Francisco, CA, 1953 Long before the bridge was built, the teenage Adams often took the streetcar from his home near Baker Beach to the waterfront downtown, caught the ferry across the Golden Gate, and spent the day roaming the Marin hills seen to the left this photograph. Compare this image with the Adams’ earlier view without the bridge (above) made in 1932.

In the 1960s, the Sierra Club, with Adams’ help, found the proposal to allow construction of high-rise apartment building on these hills. As a protest, he pasted tiny pictures of apartment building on top of the hills in this photograph and exhibited it in a San Francisco storefront. The Golden Gate National Recreation Area was established in 1972 and now protects these headlands.

Each Modern Replica is individually produced and inspected, and matched to a master proof. It is dry-mounted on smaller sizes to an acid-free backer and overmatted with 8-ply museum rag board. The image and paper is estimated to resist fading or deterioration for over 180 years. The overmat, custom selected and cut to the image, has a generous border to create a powerful effect. Framing options have been carefully selected by our experienced staff to make the most beautiful presentation possible.
