Black and white silent amateur films by Dave Tatsuno (1913-2006), a businessman in the San Francisco Bay area. Tatsuno's earliest films, taken from August 1936-January 1937, show family, church, and school activities.

This segment shows footage of Tatsuno's first time driving across the newly opened San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge on November 21, 1936; cars driving eastbound over the upper deck of the bridge's western span; entering the Yerba Buena Island tunnel; driving onto the eastern span; approaching the toll booths at the bridge's east end (00:42).

Tatsuno's notes on this clip erroneously indicate that the footage is color: "Over Bay Bridge (Kodachrome Color Film) November 21, 1936".

Credits: Dave Tatsuno Collection, Gift of Dave Tatsuno, in Memory of Walter Honderick, Japanese American National Museum (91.74). Preserved and made accessible in part by a grant from the National Film Preservation Foundation.
