This is a really lovely book, full of gorgeous nostalgic black and white photos. We visited San Francisco recently and found the history aspect of this fascinating, especially when we compared it to our modern pictures. Lots of post earthquake information and illustrations. We saw this in America and wanted to buy it then, so were delighted to find it on Amazon for such a great price.

HASH(0x8f7a23a8) out of 5 stars Revised & Updated San Francisco Travelogue! 21 Nov. 2012
By Mike O'Connor - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
For many years, I thought San Francisco was the most fascinating city in the world. Dennis Evanosky and Eric Kos' SAN FRANCISCO THEN AND NOW offers up 144 pages of evocative then and now photographs that confirm The City's unique beauty and historical character. Leafing through this 2012 Salamander Books release it's easy to see why Tony Bennett left his heart in you-know-where.

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!

My wife and I had an opportunity to see this book at a bed and breakfast in San Francisco. We ordered it when we returned home from vacation.Since we had an oportunity to briefly review it ahead of time, we knew we would enjoy it.

HASH(0x91e18420) out of 5 stars A Great Pictorial History Accompanied by Verbal Descriptions 20 Mar. 2015
By Kay E. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a fabulous book for those who did not grow up in the Bay area. It is intriguing to see what things looked like before around the time of the 1906 earthquake and what has been preserved or built in its place. I love seeing the history of SF in pictures. Each picture also has a verbal description of what and where you are looking. I put it out on my cocktail table for others to enjoy when they visit. So glad I purchased this book.
