Vintage San Francisco

Here is a unique portrait of America’s favorite city. From the devestation of the Great Quake of 1906 to the spanning of the Golden Gate and the magnificent Panama Pacific Exposition, the classic images of the City by the Bay (visited by more than 14 million people each year) have become part of the American psyche through literature, film, and song. Chronicled in dramatic black and white photographs, taken by three generations of gifted San Francisco photographers from Moulin Studios, this indelible portrait of the cool, gray, city of love, comes alive in history, legend, and lore. Here are the streets where Sam Spade south the Maltese Falcon, where Dashiell Hammett and Lillian Hellman lunched at John’s Grill, and where William Saroyan spent his days at the public library waiting for his big break. San Francisco more than lives up to its reputation as one of America’s finest and most mythic cities, and never is its mark on the American soul more apparent than in this beautifully printed book. Quotations will be included from such San Francisco writers as: Jack London, Frank Norris, Mark Twain, William Saroyan, Rudyard Kipling, and Dashiell Hammett.

Review
"This book of historic black and white images, taken over three decades by the gifted photographers at Moulin Studios, capture the city’s beauty. There are indelible photos of the Great Quake of 1906 that reveal the magnitude of the devastation, as well as the spirit of a city rebuilt and reborn. The extraordinary cover photo shows the Golden Gate Bridge shrouded in fog with a full moon glowing in the distance. Images are accompanied by celebratory quotations from writers, like these words from Mark Twain: ‘I fell in love with the most cordial and sociable city in the Union. After the sagebush and alkali deserts of Washoe, San Francisco was paradise to me.’"

Chronicled in dramatic duotone photographs taken by three generations of gifted San Francisco photographers from Moulin Studio, this indelible portrait of the cool, grey city of love comes alive in history, legend, and lore. San Francisco more than lives up
