I found this poster inside a 1936 World Atlas I bought a few years ago at a flea market. Found it just the other day. Too bad it's a little bit stained. It's still an interesting image though.

    Great photo. This is some history I posted with my 2mm pinfire pistol with the Bay Bridge & San Francisco skyline engraved on it.
    'The construction of the Bay Bridge began on July 9, 1933 and was opened for traffic on November 12, 1936. The total length of the Bay Bridge is 23,555 feet (4.46117 miles), and is 190 feet high'.

    thank you pw-collector. i don't understand what you are saying here. i get the info on the construction of the bridge, but what do you mean when you say 'i posted w/ my 2mm pinfire pistol....'? i can be very dense sometimes, so i hope you don't mind explaining it to me...

    I'm not very good at these links, but in the "Toy" category, sub-category "cap guns",
    I posted a 2mm pinfire pistol that has the Bay Bridge engraved on the side of one grip and the San Francisco skyline on the other grip. I gave the construction history of the bridge with that post and just copied it on your post here. If the line below works, it will take you to my post of the pinfire pistol.
