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.
