The Hills of San Francisco – Broadway


He may have taken a little poetic license here, Broadway as it begins to climb Russian Hill was never as romantic as this rainy Thomas Kinkade painting depicts. The Broadway Tunnel, and Senior Center built on the right since the time portrayed in Kinkade’s painting have cut down the view of the Bay Bridge, and made the view of Coit Tower impossible now. Also, Thomas Kinkade was only 54 when he died in 2012, and may have been guessing what this spot might have looked like in the past. Still, it’s a wonderful painting. (Thumbnail image)
