Book description
Originally published in 1981 A Short History Of San Francisco authored by Tom Cole is a captivating narrative with b/w photographs, that has been greatly expanded/updated to reflect current times.SF is 46.9 square miles, has a troubling geological reality of being located on the largest notorious San Andreas Fault, in addition there are several other faults which threaten the Bay Area. The earthquake in 1906 nearly destroyed SF, when fires ignited as lanterns and candles crashed to the ground, creating a firestorm that burned for 3 days and nights. Nearly 500 people perished, 250,000 people were left homeless, 300-500 million dollars in damages. Rebuilding this grand city began almost immediately with crews working around the clock to clean/clear areas.The History of SF is fascinating: * The original people/tribes were the peaceful resourceful Olone, Yurok, Hoppa. They lived according to simple ancient ways/customs. * The Spanish missionaries arrived in Northern CA in 1493, settling and civilizing, until 1776; establishing posts, churches, missions to govern the rich fertile beautiful land and enjoyable climate. * 1849 sparked a population explosion with the discovery of gold. SF would represent the land of milk and honey as the Forty-Niners and American pioneers headed west. * 1859-1872 silver ore, was discovered, with the gold rush, the Comstock. Mark Twain released his book Roughing It that chronicled the entire area, and frontier justice, that attracted people from the miners, desperados, to the refined Mormon missionaries. * 1864 Billy Ralston opened the Bank of California with 3 million dollars. This would represent SF as rich affluent area with many millionaires. * The SF Examiner was a gift to William Randolph Hurst (1863-1951) from his father George. The Hurst Corporation would become the largest chain of newspapers and influence of journalism in the US. * Irish immigrant Christopher Buckley (1845-1922) aka the White Devil never held public office, was linked to organized crime that operated China Town. The gambling halls, opium dens (26 were counted in 1885), brothels and seedy taverns were a huge source of revenue/ income, as tourists flocked to this historic area. * 1892 The Sierra Club was founded representing the most wealthy and prominent citizens. One in four Californians lived in SF at the turn of the century.SF has always represented an extreme population from the poorest to the wealthiest. The Golden Gate Bridge was built during the 1930s depression, and served as a reminder of hope and better times ahead. As I read this book, and recalled the stories from my own friends who lived in SF at one time or another, I look forward to joining the multitudes of tourists who make SF their vacation destination!Many thanks/appreciation to Heyday Publications for sponsoring the Goodreads Giveaways where I won this nice book.
