January 4th already! Where’s 2021 going to?

Just in a silly mood. I spent the First and Second of 2021 moseying around a quiet Downtown San Francisco: San Francisco Restaurants, from #9 Fishermen’s Grotto to the Cliff House, are traditionally packed on New Year’s Day, but not on Friday. Everything was closed, quiet or gone. (Thumbnail images)

The northwest corner of Jefferson and Taylor Streets in 1971: The Sea Captain’s Chest; I remember that terrific gift shop from when I was a kid. (SF Chronicle)

The crab traps for the Dungeness crab season on the boats in the Fisherman’s Wharf Lagoon in 1961, and on January 1st 2021 for the currently delayed crab season. (SF Chronicle)

 

Market Street near 4th Street in 1955: They replaced the old California Theater Building with a current building that has less character (I think) where the Ross Store is now. (ebay.com)

The western portion of the Fisherman’s Wharf Boat Lagoon, seen here in the 1930s, used to extend from the Taylor Street restaurants all the way to the Hyde Street Pier. (ebay.com)
