1939filbertuse Outta the road, kid!” Filbert Street with Saints Peter and Paul Church: Just up from this point, Filbert becomes the steepest street in San Francisco!

OperaHousebloguse Wow, it’s a 1939 Taylor Swift concert! Oh, sorry, it’s Pierre Monteux at the old Opera House. That’s the dome of City Hall reflecting in the windows.

Roundhousebloguse “No, honey, the bridge is over there!” The old Roundhouse Restaurant, later gift shop, now stands empty.

Sutrobloguse I’m in awe of anybody who can ride their bikes straight up a cliff! The Great Highway and Ocean Beach from Sutro Heights; That’s Playland-at-the-Beach in the old photo.
