Few people are fortunate to view Fort Point in San Francisco from this particular angle photographer Karen Scally was able to capture while the Golden Gate Bridge was embraced in thick fog.
Fort Point defended San Francisco Bay during the Gold Rush days through World War II. It’s been called “the Pride of the Pacific”, “the Gibraltar of the West Coast” and “Models of Masonry in America”. It was built during the height of the California Gold Rush 1853-1861. Despite its guns never have been fired in anger, it has witnessed Civil War, earthquakes, bridge construction, and World War II.
