Welcome back to Photo Friday – my little way of taking a break from San Francisco Real Estate and instead blogging about our great Cityâ€™s past instead. All photos are published with permission from the San Francisco History Center and San Francisco Public Library.
It’s been a busy busy week!Â And it’s going to be a busy busy weekend!Â I’ve been hustling to get several listings ready for market and helping several buyers on deadlines to buy homes in San Francisco.Â So being that I need a little break,Â this week’s Photo Friday post is all about trying toÂ break out of theÂ daily grindÂ have a good time.
Back in 1913, the Barbary Coast had calmed down a bit from it’s earlier days of gambling, prostitution and crime.Â But it hadn’t calmed down THAT much:
NEWSCOPY:Â “Such goings on! Deah, Deah! Good folks talked about the old Barbary Coast in the same way they do today, and with better reason. This is a busy street scene east of Kearny st., on Pacific, with the sin and gin mills going full blast to make the ‘hot spot of the world’ a bit hotter and more worldly.”
Even if you can’t get your hands on aÂ Schlitz for a nickel, you can get out there and have a good time this weekend.Â You can always find something to do in the City!Â Be safe and have fun and have a happy Friday!
