San Francisco 2017 Calendar
Take a nighttime run down Lombard Street, peek into the Cable Car Museum, give a shout out to Haight Ashbury, stop for lunch at the Fog City Diner, and enjoy a twilight view of the city’s skyline framed by the Oakland Bay Bridge. San Francisco 2017 shows off the great style of the City by the Bay all through the year.
Published by Tide-mark, the 2017 San Francisco wall calendar opens to 13.25 x 20 inches.
Places pictured in the 2017 San Fancisco calendar include:
Lombard Street may be the most exciting place to drive in San Francisco, especially on a nighttime run through its hairpin turns. The street was actually named after Lombard Street in Philadelphia by surveyor Jasper O’Farrell, who also named Market, Filbert, and Pine Streets.
The engines and winding wheels that pull the cables of the Powell-Mason and Powell-Hyde line cable cars are just part of what visitors can see at the Cable Car Museum. Located on Mason Street in San Francisco, the museum gives visitors an opportunity to see an historic collection of cable car memorabilia and learn about the history of the city’s cable cars.
Located 1.25 miles from San Francisco, Alcatraz Island may be best known for its prison, but it is also home to the oldest operating lighthouse in California. The first light was commissioned in 1846 by Mexican Governor Pio Pico who gave the island to Julian Workman for the purpose having the light constructed.
Since it opened in 1937, the Golden Gate Bridge has come to be recognized as one of the most attractive bridges in the word. At night in good weather, as in this picture, it looks especially appealing. The Golden Gate connects San Francisco with Marin County, and held the record as the longest suspension bridge in the world at 4,200 feet until 1964.
Haight Street in San Francisco’s Haight-Ashbury neighborhood reflects the zany, countercultural influence of the “hipppies” who moved in after the Psychedelic Shop opened there in 1966. Visitors can share the spirit of the neighborhood each year during the Haight-Ashbury Fair held on the second Sunday in June.
Piere 39, off the Embarcadero, offers an array of entertainment and dining options. Some of the best fun happens when you spend time watching the sea lions that have adopted the floating piers for their own rest and recreation. Just off the pier is Forbes Island. Once a private home-island with its own lighthouse, Forbes Island is now a restaurant with dining rooms both above and below San Francisco Bay.
The Fog City Diner was a San Francisco landmark on Battery Street just off . The was popular with tourists, and served as an occasional movie location. Among other productions, it was pictured in “” and on television in an episode of . The diner recently reopened as the Fog City Restaurant.
San Francisco can boast that it operates the last manually operated cable car system in the world. The first cable-operated street railway opened in 1873 and pioneered the use of “grips” that held the cable that moved the car. Of the 23 lines that opened in the following 17 years, only three survive today, but they enjoy a ridership of some 7 million people who visit the city every year.
The Oakland Bay Bridge frames the skyline of San Francisco at twilight on a quiet afternoon. Connecting the cities of San Francisco and Oakland, the bridge is actually constructed in two sections. Traffic from each city meets at Yerba Buena Island where it travels through Yerba Buena Tunnel, the largest diameter transportation bore tunnel in the world.
The Japanese Tea garden is a unique feature of Golden Gate Park in San Francisco. The five acre garden is the oldest Japanese garden in America and was originally created for the Midwinter Exposition in 1894.
The Alcatraz ferry docks here at Port 31. Rising behind it on the left is the triangular Transamerica building, while on the right is the circular Coit Tower.
The Ferry Building stretches across the foreground of this picture as the Bay Bridge angles toward Yerba Buena. Still an active marine terminal located on the Embarcadero, the Ferry Building, with its 245-foot-tall clock tower, is now a mixed-use structure that includes restaurants, offices, and retail space.
Trip down memory lane!
