"Golden Gate Suspension" ~ The two cables that gracefully suspend the bridge deck are 36.5 inches in diameter and measure 7,650 feet long between anchorages. Each cable weighs 11,000 tons. Notice the yellow light lenses. When the original 1937 fixtures were modernized in 1972, these lenses were designed to mimic the yellow glow of the old lamps.
