Put a log on the fireplace, cover yourself with an old quilt, and settle into this book - published in the 1940's. It's truly for those who love everything about San Francisco's history and wish to revisit a time when the City was seemingly a bit less complicated than it currently is. This series of essays about actual people from SF's past, places too, gives the reader a marvelous glimpse into the City's early days right on through the '06 quake and fire. I could read this stuff all day long, a little at a time, with a good splash of brandy by my side. You won't come across any books written today whose language will throw you back to an earlier time. This book is a gem and should spend more time in homes than gathering dust on a library shelf.
