San Francisco, CA

1957 Street scene in San Francisco, CA. Looking South on Stockton Street at Geary Street. Looking toward Market Street further down the block.

 

Vintage Kodak Kodachrome Slide from my aunt's collection..

 

Up the block we can see the neon signs of Wooster Opticians, Leeds, Macy's and Roos Atkins and Hartfields.

 

From Wikipedia;

 

Roos/Atkins was the name of a chain of upscale men's clothing stores based in San Francisco, California. It was formed through a 1957 merger of the Robert Atkins and Roos Brothers clothiers. The chain expanded after World War II to include several locations throughout Northern California, but declined in the 1980s; by the early 1990s all locations had been closed or sold to other retailers.
