Remember When

Golden Gate Bridge Opens First to Pedestrians - May 27, 1937 - San Francisco, California
On a typical cold and foggy May morning, an estimated 200,000 people came to celebrate the pedestrian opening of the Golden Gate Bridge. Autos will be allowed to cross at a later date. By 6am, the starting hour of Pedestrians Day, 18,000 people were waiting to cross the span from both the San Francisco and the Marin sides. When the hour struck, foghorns gave great blasts, the toll gates opened and the young and eager, mostly high school students -- ran or walked out onto the bridge. During the day, thousands of people competed to be the first to cross the bridge in some unique manner. Donald Bryan, a sprinter from San Francisco Junior College, was the first person to cross the entire span. People roller-skated, walked on stilts, walked backwards, walked dogs and cats, tap-danced, rode on unicycles, played harmonicas and tubas, all setting first-time records. That evening there was spectacular production, "The Span of Gold", a musical pageant of California history. "Photo courtesy of Golden Gate Bridge, www.goldengatebridge.org"

Max Yasgur hosts the Woodstock music festival in 1969
WOODSTOCK ROCKS Bethel, New York August 15 – 17, 1969 The largest rock concert ever, arrived and left, and we will never be the same again. The police estimated that there were a million people on the road trying to get to the festival. Controlling the overwhelming crowd was next to impossible. The festival actually took place on Max Yasgur's farm about fifty miles away. Woodstock was the original location since that was where Bob Dylan was currently residing. There were no clear headliners; the lineup included: Crosby Stills Nash and Young, Creedence Clearwater Revival, The Band, Jefferson Airplane, The Grateful Dead, Janis Joplin, Santana, The Who, Joan Baez, Arlo Guthrie, Richie Havens, Sly and the Family Stone, Blood, Sweat and Tears, Sha-Na-Na, Joe Cocker, Jimi Hendrix, and many more. Jimi Hendrix’s guitar solo of the "Star Spangled Banner" might be the most memorable musical event of the festival. Woodstock was a peaceful gathering for one million young citizens who were virtually left on their own and discovered the words Sharing, Helping, Consideration, and Respect. Thousands left the Woodstock event with a totally different outlook on life, and rock music moved to the forefront of American pop culture.
