BCC | San Francisco Through Time

January 31, 2022

With over 400 officially designated local, state, and national landmarks, San Francisco is steeped in history. The city’s neighborhoods feature unique buildings and special places, some that are well known to residents and tourists but also structures and locations that have been obscured by time. Beginning at Captain Richardson’s tent near Grant Avenue and winding our way through neighborhoods throughout San Francisco, author Catherine Accardi shares the rich history of San Francisco in contrasting images, uncovering and revealing San Francisco in new ways. With over 100 photographs, her book, San Francisco Through Time, takes readers on a quest to discover the places. and the stories behind them, that make San Francisco special. Join us on a journey through time courtesy of historical photographs juxtaposed alongside present day images.

February 2, 2022

Join us on February 2nd, 2022 at 6 PM for a Zoom Event to kick off our 50th anniversary year. In addition to celebrating our founding members—and their teachers—we will play a party game or two. Charades on Zoom? Pictionary? Trivial Pursuit?

Yes, 1972 was an exciting year. The Hippies were in their prime and the Hand Bookbinders of California burst onto the scene. Who were our founding board members? Where did they hold meetings? What were the alternative names that the early membership came up with for our organization? What is the name of Roberta Flack’s number one single? What book soared to the top of the New York Times Best Sellers list on October 1st of that year?

Please join us and wear a thinking cap! Literally!

A prize will be awarded for the best hat. All members attending the party who are wearing a hat will receive one vote for the Best Hat Award.
