San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge March

This sheet music for Charles W. Kremer's piece San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge March commemorated the 1936 opening of bridge and was dedicated to its Chief Engineer, C.H. Purcell. 

This week Bay Area residents have been celebrating the opening of the new eastern span of the Bay Bridge and have been wowed by the spectacular views of the San Francisco cityscape and the Oakland Hills. Have these vistas inspired any musical musings honoring our new Bay Bridge? 

To view more of the California Historical Society's sheet music you can check out the California Sheet Music Project or visit CHS' North Baker Research Library.
