Woman on balcony of The Roundhouse restaurant near the Golden Gate Bridge. The restaurant closed in the 70s and sources I found say it’s now used as a visitor center (with a view).
From the San Francisco Public Library’s (amazing) archive:

On back: “When the directors of the Golden Gate Bridge & Highway  District decided to construct a restaurant at the Toll Plaza on the  Bridge, they selected a sight that offers one of the most magnificent  panoramas in the world.  View of “The Roundhouse”, with Mrs. Carl Wilke  in the foreground and the Bridge in the background.”.
