Go West (on the Eastern Span)

Eastern Span, 5.5” x 4.25”, mixed media on paper and the new and old Eastern Span

We know it has to be replaced and it should have happened years ago.  The new Eastern Span is almost ready.  Still, I will miss the old bridge.  I remember that first ride across the upper deck as a kid and seeing San Francisco for the first time.  Every time I drive west on the upper deck I know I am almost home to my magic City.  it is especially welcoming after a long road trip.  Above is a piece from a series of handmade “souvenir” postcards of our good old Eastern Span.  76 years, it’s time to retire.
