San Francisco Look

    Newer Older

    The architecture of San Francisco is quite varied, from the modern skyscrapers to the vintage wooden Victorians of the 1800s. I have always been impressed with the detail and style of the Victorian houses. Their preservation is a point of pride for many San Franciscans.

      Some 11,000 Victorian houses still exist in San Francisco. Since the "Flower Power" era of the 1960s an architectural conservation movement largely halted the destruction of these structures for "redevelopment" into highrise apartments. Much like prohibition against cutting heritage oak or redwood trees it is now difficult or impossible to bring in the demolition crew on the architectural heritage of San Francisco.

      San Francisco is a favorite destination for visitors from the UK. The direct flights from LHR to SFO are always packed. Visitors often remark that San Francisco is a unique western American city--a diverse cosmopolitan center with a different attitude than many others, surrounded by natural beauty and a refreshing around-the-year climate. The neighborhoods seem like a living architectural magazine.
      -and, of course, visitors are the bread and butter of our local economy.

      A unique city indeed - and this shot neatly captures some of the architecture that makes it special.
