Golden Gate Bridge
These photos of San Francisco were taken through the periscope of the U.S. Navy submarine U.S.S. Catfish back in 1951. The photos depict the Golden Gate Bridge, northern stretches of San Francisco, and Alcatraz, all through the somewhat disconcerting crosshairs of the periscope. Originally published in a San Francisco Chronicle article in January, 1951, the photos were republished this week on the SFGate blog, The Big Event.
