System and Santa Fe were acquired by Santa Fe's real estate development arm, later known as the Catellus Development Corporation, and this firm proceeded with the development which is today, a sprawling shopping center and multiunit residential district. The bridge consists of two main spans of roughly equal length, a western span connecting downtown San Francisco to Yerba Buena Island and an eastern span connecting the island to Oakland. The main part of the western span is a suspension bridge while the main part of the eastern span is a cantilever bridge. During the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake, a section of the eastern span's upper deck collapsed onto the lower deck and the bridge was closed for a month. Reconstruction of the eastern span (Eastern span replacement of the San Francisco – Oakland Bay Bridge) as a self-anchored suspension bridge began in 2002 and is scheduled to open in 2013. Composition The bridge consists of two major crossings connecting each shore with Yerba Buena Island, a natural outcropping located mid-bay that is part of the city of San Francisco. The Western crossing lies between Yerba Buena and the rest of San Francisco. It is composed of two complete suspension spans connected at a center anchorage. long, in Niles Canyon Francisco – Oakland Bay Bridge#Yerba_Buena_Tunnel Yerba Buena Tunnel , Interstate 80 near the middle of the San Francisco – Oakland Bay Bridge complex, Yerba Buena Island, San Francisco (San Francisco, California) image_caption The Ferry Building, along the Embarcadero (The Embarcadero (San Francisco)).

Treasure Island Treasure Island, a completely flat, artificial island attached to Yerba Buena Island, was built specifically for the Exposition near where the Oakland span and the San Francisco span of the Bay Bridge join. Built by the federal government, Treasure Island was to be an airport for Pan American's (Pan American World Airways) Pacific Rim service of flying boats, of which the China Clipper is an example. Due to wartime (Pacific War) needs, it was soon turned into a naval base, which was occupied by the US Navy from 1941 to 1997. ''Treasure Island'', American Heritage Dictionary, Fourth Edition.

Kristianstad

, such as Kristianstad or Karlskrona (named after kings Christian IV of Denmark and Karl XI of Sweden). Though unquestionably a Swedish victory the battle had little influence on the outcome of the war. As long as the Danes were victorious at sea and held the fortified town of Landskrona they could easily bring reinforcements to Scania. The Swedish army now counted 7,000 men, but this was not enough to take Landskrona. After a couple of skirmishes around Kristianstad, the main

part of the Swedish army marched back north to Sweden proper to find winter quarters, while Christian V shipped some of his troops back to Zealand (Zealand (Denmark)). In 1678 he commanded the Danish army in the Scania.

He was captured during Battle of Lundy's Lane and held prisoner of war in Massachusetts until March 1815. He was born in Farmington, Connecticut in 1775.

He worked with his uncle and later entered business on his own, forming a partnership with Thomas Clark (Thomas Clark (Upper Canada)) around 1798. He established a number of sawmills and gristmills in the Niagara (Niagara Peninsula) region, mainly in partnership with Clark. The gristmills processed wheat produced on farms in the region; these mills, by virtue of their location, were the major source of flour production in Upper Canada. Several of their mills were burned by the American (United States)s during the War of 1812 but they were eventually compensated for these losses. Street also profited as a major money lender. He became a major share-holder in the Bank of Upper Canada and the Gore Bank; he also held shares in the Bank of Montreal and the Commercial Bank of the Midland District. With William Hamilton Merritt, he acquired shares in the Welland Canal Company.
