Apartment hunting on Russian Hill in the 1950’s:
“Is this place for rent?”
“It is, fifty dollars a month.”
“Why, that’s ridiculous!”
“Take it or leave it.”

California Street up from Stockton Street in the 1950’s: This is a redo that I went back for; it’s too nice of an old picture to not try to get as close as possible. (vintage everyday)
Police activity at the Cliff House in 1958, and police activity at the Cliff House yesterday: Click on the link below for some more police action in a series of pictures I did called ‘Cops” in May of 2015.
Speaking of the Cliff House, this was how it looked in the early 1970’s. How cool was that; although, I would have got seasick looking at it! The totem pole farther down the street is still there.
