The aim of this site is two-fold. One is to sell a few books and the other is to share some history and photos of the San Francisco Bay Area in particular and California in general.
"Mystery photos" will be added from time to time and you are invited to guess the what, where, when and why of them. A small prize (probably a book) will be given for the first, correct or most correct, answer received via E-mail.
Many of the B&W photos that appear on this site are from the J.E.Tillmany collection of the San Francisco Public Library. The source of all other photos, B&W or color, will be given in the caption of the particular photo (my own photos excepted).
Change happens and many memories are swept away with the debris. My desire is to kindle some lost memories.
