Overview

San Francisco, the City by the Bay, rose from a small Spanish settlement to become one of the largest and most unique cities in the United States. Vintage postcards from the 1900s to the 1960s showcase the Golden Gate Bridge (one of the Seven Modern Wonders of the World), cable cars as they make their way up Market Street, Alcatraz Island and the prison that housed public enemies like Al Capone, Machine Gun Kelly, and Robert Franklin Stroud (the Birdman of Alactraz). Take in the exotic sights of Chinatown, Fisherman's Wharf, the de Young Museum, Golden Gate Park, and see the historic buildings at the Presidio, or watch the sea lions on Seal Rock from the balcony of the Cliff House. Enjoy the wonderful diversity that has made San Francisco a tourist destination for 100 years.
