This is an incredible book of photos, and the back stories are really interesting, too. Beautifully printed and hardbound, it is a must-have for anyone interested in photography, especially for anyone who is totally in love with the City! For those of us who consider San Francisco to be our Mistress, one book of photos is never enough. In fact, a whole entire library of a collection of books about the Bay area is never going to be enough! But whether you’re new to the City, or a long-time resident, or a beloved traveler who loves to spend endless hours discovering San Francisco’s history, its magnificence and charm, Fred Lyon’s book covering periods between 1940 and 1960 is a great place to start. There’s plenty more where that came from!.
