What were locals reading while the Golden Gate Bridge was being built?  This exhibit of first editions, photographs and ephemera draws on the resources of San Francisco History Center and other library collections to feature the best sellers of the period and works of California authors. Highlighted, too, are the printers, booksellers, and libraries that made books available to the public.
