Old photographs can give us a unique perspective on history. The ones in this list are all remarkable, and you probably haven’t seen them before. They may make you look at the past in a new light. Some of them are bittersweet, some of them funny, and some of them tragic.

Construction on the Golden Gate Bridge began on January 5,1933 and cost $35 million to build. However, it was completed ahead of the projected schedule and under budget by $1.3 million. Pretty impressive for such a huge undertaking.
