The art on this building is cool. The geometry, the lights... just cool. At night it lights up. It rotates colors and the colors make shapes disappear and other things appear. One minute it's all balloons, the next it's a heron. It's pretty. #k9lifecoachingpresents #bayarea #heron #heronheadpark #ecologycenter #sanfrancisco #hunterspoint #industrial #art #lights #lightart #lightdisplay #sanfranciscohistory
With โ€œTombstoneโ€ the Benny Bufano black cat sculpture that graced San Franciscoโ€™s Press Club for years. Now at the University Club on Nob Hill- what a joy to see this!

Do you know about the history of The International Hotel? Itโ€™s not just where we had our holiday party.

This is one of my favorite photos in my momโ€™s parentsโ€™ collection, which Iโ€™ve been identifying and scanning. From left to right, this is my great-grandfather, great-great grandfather, unknown, unknown, and my great-grandmother, sometime around the late 1910s or early 1920s, in San Francisco, CA. My great-grandparents didnโ€™t stay together very long, so there are only a couple images of them together. The ladies here appear to be standing with cue sticks, dressed alike, and the men are leaning on or out of a car. I wish I knew more of the story behind this photo.

Union Square in 1910 . Every year for generations, a great Christmas tree has stood sentinel in Union Square, San Francisco, during the holidays. . The Tannenbaum Toast is the annual holiday celebration of The Emperorโ€™s Bridge Campaign, the San Francisco-based nonprofit that works to honor theย life and advance the legacy of Joshua Abraham Nortonย (c.1818 โ€“ 1880), the eccentric and visionary best known as Emperor Norton. The toast pays tribute to the tradition that it was Emperor Norton whoย originally called for the great Christmas treeย that has stood sentinel in Union Square, San Francisco, every holiday season since 1880. 6th Annual Tannenbaum Toast Sunday, December 9, 2018 | 4 pm-6 pm โ€“ House of Shields (39 New Montgomery St.) . . This is Bennett Hallโ€™s lovely, hand-tinted version of a black-and-white photograph of the Christmas tree in Union Square, San Francisco, in 1910. . . #sfhistory #funcheap #emperornorton #unionsquaresf #unionsquare #sanfrancisco #sanfranciscohistory #bayarea #sanfranciscobayarea #funcheapsf #xmasinsf #sfchristmas #sfart #bennetthall

J.W. Tucker arrived in San Francisco aboard the USS San Francisco bound from Panama in 1850. He very quickly set up shop on the corner of Mongtomery and Sutter streets in San Francisco, a booming, rapidly expanding town with vast amounts of new wealth and new residents (the growth in no small part spurred on by the California gold rush). J.W. Tucker & Co. was known for making watches and other fine jewelry, and while little is known about the maker, the quality and craftsmanship of his work is self-evident. . Lot 31 J.W. Tucker & Co. pocket watch Circa 1850s, San Francisco, CA est: $3,000-4,000 . Featured in our Rare & Important Timepieces auction, December 12. .

The "Safe/Unsafe" street poster campaign developed by the San Franciscoโ€“based queer cultural activist network Boy With Arms Akimbo/Girl With Arms Akimbo in 1990 juxtaposed images of safe sexual acts with images of figures and institutions of power and authority who made the world unsafe for people with AIDS. . With the death of George H.W. Bush (1924โ€“2018), an Akimbo "Unsafe" poster offers a salutary reminder about the record of the man who held the office of President of the United States from 1989 to 1993. . While the American media are largely singing the praises of Bush's supposed decency, moderation and courtesy, those of us who survived his presidency while battling for basic respect and funding to address the AIDS epidemic have a different memory. The text at the bottom of the poster sets things straight. . "President George Bush offers a 'kinder, gentler' rhetoric on AIDS, but his policies continue to promote genocide by neglect. Bush has refused to support national health care, thereby denying proper medical treatment to nearly a third of the population. He has refused to rescind the medically useless ban on travel and immigration to the U.S. by people with HIV infection. He has opposed granting emergency federal funding to cities devastated by the disease. Mouthing platitudes while thousands die is not enough. NO MORE WORDS! WE WANT ACTION." . This copy of the poster is reproduced from a collection of Akimbo materials I handled as a book dealer. The complete Akimbo archives are held by the GLBT Historical Society in San Francisco (glbt_history). . #lgbt #gay #queer #lgbthistory #gayhistory #queerhistory #queeractivism #hiv #hivpositive #aidsepidemic #aidactivism #akimbo #boywitharmsakimbo #girlwitharmsakimbo #georgehwbush #posterdesign #vintageposter #streetart #sanfrancisco #sanfranciscohistory #1980s #1990s

Drive-In Theatre. Sort of. The El Capitan, once the second-biggest movie theater in San Francisco, was demolished in 1961. The rest of the building (shops, a rooming house and the old marquee) are still there. Ever since, motorists can drive through what was once the lobby entrance into what was once a 3,000-seat theater, and pay for parking. It's a parking lot. The long lost interior of the El Capitan was Spanish Colonial Revival. The surviving faรงade is Mexican Baroque. The architect, Gustave Albert Lansburgh, was one of the masters of theater design in the first half of the 20th century. โ€”โ€” #sanfrancisco #sanfranciscoarchitecture #architecture #spanishcolonialrevival #mexicanbaroque #parkinglot #pavedparadiseandputupaparkinglot #elcapitantheatre #theatre #themission #parkinglot #sanfranciscohistory #movietheater

Today marks 40 years since the assassination of Harvey Milk, just one year after becoming Californiaโ€™s first openly gay elected official. His legacy still lives on stronger than ever. 40 years after his death and decades after his history-making election, a record-breaking โ€œrainbow waveโ€ of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Americans followed in his footsteps by running for office and winning. โœŠ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป๐ŸŒˆ . . . . . #lgbtq #sanfrancisco #lgbtqia #gay #gayrights #lgbthistory #pride #hope #equality #rip #california #georgemoscone #queerhistory #queer #sf #civilrights #instagay #lgbtqhistory #gayhistory #lesbian #hero #history #lgbtrights #activism #icon #resist #love #sanfranciscohistory #harveymilk #harveymilkday (๐Ÿ“ธ: @kamalaharris )

Learn your history. I am grateful to live in a city with a rich history of human rights fighters and legends. Harvey Milk will never be forgotten. Today marks the anniversary of his assassination as he worked in San Francisco City Hall. We cannot forget Mayor Moscone who was also murdered that day. A terrible loss for Us all, but the fire that came from these senseless deaths burns bright today as we push forward and fight for equality for all. #harveymilk #lgbtqhistory #sanfranciscohistory #harveylivesinallofus

#Onthisday in 1935, the first airfield expansion was completed at SFO extending Runway โ€œCโ€ from 1,900 to 3,000 feet. The airportโ€™s first reclamation project took two years and augmented the airfield with 38 additional acres. The extension enabled the development of a runway with an orientation that could take better advantage of the prevailing west-northwest winds. Image: San Francisco Airport, aerial, 1937.

The Cobweb Palace in San Francisco was decorated with spider webs, South Sea island clubs and masks, and a Native American totem pole, among many other curios both valuable and worthless. Though it was hardly a family spot, children liked to stop by and see the parrots, magpies, and parakeets flying around. Roaming monkeys greeted patrons while outside the door was a caged bear. It was run by eccentric "Old Abe" Warner, who traded drinks for exotic pets, curios, and pieces of scrimshaw as well as money. The bar/restaurant was in business from 1856-1893. In the second photograph you can really see the spiderwebs hanging from the ceiling.

In the coming weeks weโ€™re going to hear a lot about the housing crisis emerging from the fire. Thousands of people lost their homes in the recent fires, and the state has little to no comparable housing available. So now is a good time to remember the humble earthquake cottages of 1906. After the earthquake and fire of 1906 thousands of San Franciscans were homeless, and they were camping in parks while they wondered how, when, and what they would rebuild. Well, thousands of people living in the parks (especially Golden Gate and Dolores Parks) was not tenable for the city. The army built over 5,000 cottages like the ones pictured here and rented them, for $2 a month, to the survivors of the quake and fire. For $5 a month the family could rent-to-own and move the cottage back to their own lot. A few still survive and are lived in, generally with substantial modifications. These two are on display in the Presidio (where the army was stationed) in their original state. They are spartan- just a room with a roof, really- but they got people shelter and a little privacy, and they were built and distributed relatively quickly after the disaster. Weโ€™ve done it before and we can do it again, is what Iโ€™m saying. . .

Fog or smoke? Hard to tell--a bit of both I think. Eerie nonetheless. #sanfrancisco #treasureisland #sanfranciscohistory #sflove

Market Street Railway's Historic Streetcars. Built in 1946-48 for Philadelphia Transportation Company. This one is St Louis #1050 . SF Muni values the history of these railcars. We have the rail cars of cities from all over the world, and many from other U.S. cities. You will also see SF railcars in those cities when you travel. #sanfranciscohistory #CaliforniaHistory #marketstreetrailway #muni #SFMuni #Westcoast #bestcoast #californiacaptures #californiahistoricalsociety #sfhistorydays #Clement #TheodoreJudah #TitoKennethsRailCars #marketstreet #sanfrancisco #California #iLeftMyHeartInSanFrancisco
This brass wolf's head hook once hung within the Church of Satan, I am told. I don't know if I could ever absolutely confirm that but I've got a good feeling. Not to mention, it's a lovely wicked piece. I have attached the info given by the guy I got it from. Ritual chamber robe hook? If anyone has any more info, please share. #churchofsatan #thechurchofsatan #theblackhouse #sanfrancisco #antonlavey #antonszandorlavey #sanfranciscohistory #6114californiastreet #6114california #wolf #antique #wolfhead #wolfshead #satan #satanic #satanist #hailsatan #satanicbible #thesatanicbible #laveyansatanism #lavey #blackhouse #satanicritual #satanicrituals #satanisthedevilsmass #satanis #satanicmass #thesatanicmass #unholy #witch
Tomorrow in the SF Fillmore district, on the 40th anniversary of the Jonestown massacre, there will be an event to remember Peoples Temple. From speaker and organizer Prof. James Taylor: โ€œOn November 18, 2018, the executive leadership of โ€˜San Francisco Beautifulโ€™ and the NCLF will announce details of a public bid for proposals to dedicate a fitting monument on Fillmore Street next to the McDonaldโ€™s, to โ€˜The Peoples Temple/Victims and Survivors of Jonestown.โ€™ Ideally, the marker would be at the site of Peoples Temple, but it is in the community, on the same street where Peoples Temple once called home, (since the U.S. Postal Service occupies the actual site of the Temple at 1859 Geary). The event theme is โ€˜Homecoming: A Day of Atonement in the Fillmore, Reclaiming Heritage in San Francisco.โ€™ Its aim is to come full circle with this painful past, to call people back to the Fillmore and San Francisco on this day, to extend and mark a public space in San Francisco, and to place the City of San Francisco on the right side of how Peoples Temple might be preserved and publicly presented as part of the cityโ€™s past, no matter how deeply painful, for future generations of visitors, students, new residents, researchers, and leaders to understand. These community-based organizations and their public and private partners recognize the 40th year since Jonestown and the end of Peoples Temple for the milestone observation that it is for the community, for the City of San Francisco, for any media or remaining public interest, and most particularly for surviving families scattered throughout the country. Weather permitting, participants will walk together, hand in hand, step by step, arm in arm, from 1859 Geary Blvd. at 2:00 pm, following a media press statement, down Fillmore to the Mini Park at Fillmore St., between Turk and Golden Gate. People who are not able or inclined to participate in the walk, can join the program that begins at 2:30 pm and continue to partake of live music, food, prayer and the reclaiming and dedication of space in the Fillmore/Western Addition.โ€ #PeoplesTemple #SanFranciscoHistory
