76th Anniversary of the Golden Gate Bridge Opening

My postcard US-2005787 to Finland features the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco in a black and white drawing. The Golden Gate Bridge, a suspension bridge and part of both U.S. Route 101 and California State Route 1, links San Francisco to Marin County. It is one of the most internationally recognized symbols of San Francisco, California, and the United States; and possibly the most photographed bridge in the world. The bridge-opening celebration began on May 27, 1937 and lasted for one week, as seen on this Youtube video.

The postcard was purchased at SFMOMA along with US-2011378, and US-2165886 as a coloring postcard pack. I was hoping recipients of those postcards would coloring them and send me a picture after they done so.
