Overview

Long ago, the Barbary Coast was a district of song and dance and scandal—and now it’s a quietly beautiful street. The Golden Gate Theatre was once home to vaudeville classics—and its tradition of staging remarkable performances continues today with the latest hits from Broadway. See how much—and how little—this vibrant city by the bay has changed in San Francisco Then and Now.

Fans of the foggy city can take a tour of bustling Fisherman’s Wharf, roll down the crookedest street in the world, and hop on a cable car in this completely revised and updated compact edition of San Francisco Then and Now. Historic sites and landmarks are shown in stunning modern and vintage photos, accompanied by informative text about the city’s history. From Haight-Ashbury’s Summer of Love in 1967 to its more gentrified look today, from Alcatraz operating as a prison in the 1930s to its current incarnation as a tourist attraction, readers can leave their hearts in San Francisco without ever leaving home.
