This photograph shows the completed original east span of the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge, looking north-east from Yerba Buena Island. This span was eventually replaced after a section of the upper deck collapsed onto the lower deck during the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake. The new east span, a suspension bridge with only one deck, opened to traffic in 2013.
