No, that’s not a song by the band Chicago, that was ‘25 or 6 to 4’. I have a friend who was born in 1962 on June 2nd. Of course, a lot of people were born on June 2nd 1962, but Cindy’s the only one that I know. These are vintage pictures from 1962.

The cable car turnaround at Powell and Market Streets looking in the opposite direction from where most pictures are taken at this location: Eddy Street where the building with the ‘Christopher for Lieutenant Governor’ sign is used to cut through to Market Street before it was cut off in the early 1970’s by Hallidie Plaza and the Powell Street BART Station. George Christopher, who was Mayor of San Francisco in 1962, lost his bid for lieutenant Governor in that election. (Chronicle)

One thought on “6/2 in 1962 (For Cindy)”
That was five years before I was born, so I don’t remember any of it.
