Golden Gate Bridge Opening day 1937 - GLP sleuths - Do you see a Monorail system?
[link to twentytwowords.com]


GLP - Dietrich claims the Golden Gate Bridge had a MONORAIL system before they stripped the steel for WWII.

Here is a photo of opening day. Is the monorail system there? It could be on the right, but I'm not sure.

Dietrich claims to be responsible for removing the history of the MONORAIL of this bridge.

Checking his info. now.

Did it possibly run UNDER the bridge? Another possibility.

It seems unlikely. I've crawled around under there during my foolhardy youth. There are enormous cross beams that obstruct an easy linear path.

He says "ran on either side both ways" so one should see it on both sides. I frankly don't see it unless it's been photo-shopped out.

to give the benefit of doubt. opening day may have been for the main bridge and the monorail installed shortly after.

what do you think?

Deitrich claims "there should be no photo evidence of this since I destroyed it..." hmmm

PIN for sleuthing. I will play other side and say "BS, there WAS NO MONORAIL!"

Pic for opening day does not support monorail myth.

Yes, but that proves nothing. It's convenient for Disney to have a monorail for that and not a car lane.

I am not discounting all of his info. but this is just the first thing I've checked of his.

What is the explanation for no monorails in the opening day photo?


1) they weren't built on opening day

2) they are there, but a bit underneath

benefit of doubt

The last picture clearly shows no monorail.

It's possible it was added shortly afterwards. Monorails were a very popular concept before car ownership started becoming ubiquitous after WW2.

Another possibility:

The pic is from later after the monorail was removed, yet they are calling it the 1937 pic, but this is stretching it now.

For this to be true, there must have been another "pedestrian only" day as you can see from the pic.

There was Pedestrian only day on opening day.

"The Golden Gate Bridge opened on May 27, 1937. On the first day, only pedestrians were allowed. An estimated 200,000 people crossed."

I think I watched some footage about that many years ago.
It was an impressive sight, quite unforgettable.

Imagine yourself at that moment in time.
What exhilaration must those people have felt...

He said "monorail running in both directions". Now I assume that meant to run a "railcar" of some sort.

However, if you look at the link above, this monorail company has the Golden Gate Bridge in the background. Now that is curious.

So why have a monorail unless you intend to use it to "rail something" back and forth.

So, regardless, "mono rail" implies locomotion of something.

If "monorailing" means something else, you will have to explain.

Ok, if you look at the link above, I can see that possibly there was a rail of this sort laid somewhere going both ways to move something, not a railcar, but other items. Obviously, if it was to move a railcar, this would be a major operation and would show up it pics from '37 to '41. If it was just a monorail for some other use, then that is possible.
