The Great Earthquake and Fire of 1906 left 225,000 people homeless and 500 people dead, and challenged the city to rebuild. In 1967, the last migration of 100,000 "Flower Children" came to settle in the Haight-Asbury section of the city. Contemporary San Francisco is presented here by Brad Perks' amazing photographs.
