May 27, 1937. Today is the 75th Anniv of the opening of the Golden Gate Bridge, one of my favorite places. Military biplanes fly between the towers of the Golden Gate Bridge as pedestrians walk across the span during opening ceremonies. Cars didn't drive on it until the next day. Found this on LA Times website, credited as an AP Photo but there are other credits around, so not sure about original source.

Astronaut M. Scott Carpenter, prime pilot for the Mercury-Atlas 7 (MA-7) mission, is recovered from Atlantic Ocean after MA-7 flight. A diver helps Carpenter into a life raft while the capsule floats nearby. Due to spacecraft alignment error when the retrorockets were fired, and a three-second delay, "Aurora 7" splashed down 250 miles beyond the intended landing point, and Carpenter spent nearly 3 hours on the water before recovery.
