SAN FRANCISCO THEN AND NOW was originally published in 2009. This "completely revised and updated" edition is the third re-imagining of the original. Starting with Fort Point, the authors provide two-page write-ups on San Francisco's most memorable sites and attractions such as the Golden Gate, the Marine District, Hyde Street, cable cars, Twin Peaks, Fisherman's Wharf, Lombard Street, Nob Hill, the Ferry Building, Market Street and Union Square. Period images, some dating back to the 1860s, are presented on the left. The facing page features a color photograph of the present-day site.
Whatever your interest in San Francisco, the Evanosky and Kos book should prove a delightful, evocative and charming guide to this magical city. Recommended.
My love for San Francisco was eventually trumped by an even more fascinating city...London!
