As official photographers of the Golden Gate Bridge, Gabriel Moulin and his sons Raymond and Irving documented the project from start to finish.
While all three photographed the bridge's construction, Raymond produced the majority of the harrowing, high-altitude images. Many of their photographs are presented in the book High Steel, by Richard Dillon, Thomas Moulin and Donald DeNevi (Celestial Arts, 1998).
