1948: Workers paint the western span of the Bay Bridge when it was more than a decade old. The Bay Bridge was erected less than a year before the Golden Gate Bridge and declared by Franklin Delano Roosevelt to be the greatest construction project in U.S. history. Photo taken by Duke Downey, a longtime Chronicle photographer who often put himself in precarious places to get a great result.
