San Francisco 1932: A View From Above (Video)

What's missing from this image?
Last week, we showed you some alluring aerial footage of the Golden Gate Bridge, taken from 2,000 feet above using the awe-inspiring GoPro camera mounted on the left of a Piper Saratoga.

But that was last week.

Today, we have some equally pleasing aerial footage of San Francisco to show you, albeit filled with not-so-high-definition images shot in 1932. As you can see, many of San Francisco's landmarks are alive and well, except for one.

Sure, GoPro technology has created a whole new host of "holy shit" moments, but what you won't get from last week's video is a black-and-white history lesson on San Francisco.
