About This Item

New York: Bramhall House, 1959. 228 pp., 8.5 X 11.25 inches. Case-bound in cloth with dust jacket. Illustrated throughout in black & white. Includes index. LoC#: 59-12453 From the publisher: "'Every man should be allowed to love two cities—his own and San Francisco,' Gene Fowler has said. Now that much-loved city has a new tribute in this 'flagrant, unabashed valentine' in words and pictures, together capturing the myriad elements that make San Francisco unique and enchanting. "Barnaby Conrad writes of the past, the Gold Rush days, the earthquake and fire, the Vigilantes, the colorful personalities of still-remembered San Franciscans of earlier times. "He writes of the present, the views, the fog, the bridges and ships and boats, Fisherman's Wharf and Chinatown, the hills, architecture, night life, restaurants, cable cars, the people of today going about the extremely pleasant business of being San Franciscans—daily and on Sunday. "Throughout are photographs, two hundred of them, with four in color, by a roster of photographic 'greats' from Ansel Adams to Jerome Zerbe. These were chosen from among thousands, the criteria being their pictorial excellence and their coverage of every aspect of this photogenic city, the familiar and the rare. "For San Franciscans, visitors, or go-there-someday dreamers, this big beautiful 'profile with pictures' should be irresistible."
