Vignettes of San Francisco

Almira BAILEY (? - ?)

A collection of observations and stories about San Franciscan life - the people, the buildings, the parks, the food, the street-cars, the bay, Alcatraz, the sounds and the smells and the characteristics and idiosyncrasies of this fascinating city. Excerpt...IN the same way that the poets have loved Rome and made their pilgrimages there - as good Moslems travel toward Mecca, so there are some of us who have come to San Francisco. Then when we arrive and find it all that we have dreamed, our love for it becomes its highest tribute. - Summary by Unknown
