Your Papers Please! 1939

If you think driving today is a big deal, imaging what it must have been like in 1939. Two years after the Golden Gate bridge in San Francisco was opened Californian hosted an exposition to celebrate it and everything California. If you were thinking of taking a motor tour anywhere in the US, it is likely that this new engineering wonder of a span was on the to-do list. 
I am only now learning about temporary driving permits required in each State, but apparently California was one of them.
This driver either took his car cross-country or bought a car and visited California and likely took both the car and this permit over the bridge.

You can read more about the Exposition here.
