San Francisco

This picture of San Francisco was taken in 1912. It shows the Crocker Building on the corner of Post and Market Streets. I like the view of the street cars.

  1. Wow, that corner has changed.

    Nobody wears a suit anymore. :-)

  2. And isn't that a shame that men don't often wear suits anymore? I get weak in the knees when I see a guy decked out in a nice suit and smelling of a good aftershave....Mmmmmmmmmm!

  4. I used to jog around the park just off the left in the nineties. It looks different, especially the trolleys, but New York still had horse drawn carriages (for the tourists) so not too different. I am actually surprised that so much of New York was already built in 1912.

  5. Hey AB, this is SFO not NY. :-)

    When I visited SFO five years ago there was a lot of pedestrian traffic around this area, and sadly a lot of bums and homeless people. The trolleys have been replaced with electric trains.

  6. O My gosh,

    It looks just like the flat-iron building in lower Manhattan.

    Reading blogs late at night when you get home can be treacherous..lol.

  7. I agree. It DOES look just like the Flat Iron Building in NY.

    I wonder if they had the same architect?
