5 of 56: San Francisco Architect Timothy L. Pflueger and Chief Engineer C. H. Purcell are looking at a model of an approach to the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge in 1933. Pflueger was chairman of a board of consulting architects to help with the design of the bridge, Transbay Terminal, toll booths and administrate buildings. Originally, the board wanted the bridge to be painted black to highlight its complexities, but ultimately they chose grey to "harmonize the steel and concrete elements".
