There's no denying the charm of San Francisco, a city perched on rolling hills, where “little cable cars climb half-way to the stars.” With dramatic vistas at every turn, the Pacific Ocean to the west and the Bay to the east, its cityscape is like no other place on Earth. Discover San Francisco history in this all-new edition of San Francisco Then and Now.
* Filled with amazing then-and-now photographs, some previously unpublished, that include cable cars, the Ferry Building, Palace of Fine Arts, and the Transamerica Pyramid, all the city's most popular attractions.
* This unique book of San Francisco history features a selection of dramatic photos taken before, during, and after the 1906 Earthquake and fire. See how the city rose from the ashes with a series of skyline photos.
* San Francisco's most beloved landmark gets the royal treatment. Compare a photo of the Golden Gate Bridge during its construction in 1934 to its current elegant grandeur.
* How did Lombard Street get to be the “crookedest street in the world?” See it in 1922 when it was under construction and what it looks like now. (For the record, Lombard is actually San Francisco's second most crooked street!)
