Caption

"When the Golden Gate is Golden" No more inspiring sight anywhere rivals the Golden Gate at sunset. Between the peaks of land, the sun sinks into the Blue Pacific and ships entering or leaving San Francisco's harbor are silhouetted against the skyline. The Golden Gate Bridge across this entrance to San Francisco Bay, is a single 4200 ft. structure, being a connecting link with all Northern Countries and the famous Redwood Empire.

Excerpt from Message

"Out Where the West Begins" Out where the handclasp's a little stronger, Out where the smile swells a little longer, That's where the West begins, Out where the sun is a little brighter, Where the snows that fall are a trifle whiter, Where the bonds of home are a wee bit tighter, That's where the West Begins.
