Description Construction of the San Mateo-Hayward Bridge, 1963. Black and white negative shows construction on the San Mateo-Hayward Bridge. Six people stand on the bridge at center, posing for a photograph. There are overhead power lines above and behind them, and the East Bay hills are visible on the other side of the bay. On the right side of the image, six construction workers perform various tasks. One looks through a surveying instrument mounted on a tripod, one holds a hose that is connected to a mixer, and the other four are working on the piers supporting the bridge. Part of a series.
