Celebrate San Francisco and all the things to do there: take a trolley from the Embarcadero, ride a cable car up Hyde St., zoom down Lombard St., visit the Castro, admire the fishing trawlers along the pier, watch the morning fog break around the Golden Gate Bridge and grab a ferry to Sausalito. San Francisco 2020 shows off the great style of the City by the Bay all through the year!

Locations pictured in this edition include:

• San Francisco’s Chinatown is home to a vibrant community of Chinese speakers and culture.

• Construction of the Golden Gate Bridge began in 1933. The design of its supporting piers was planned to preserve Fort Point, the Civil War-era bastion guarding the Golden Gate below the new bridge.

• San Francisco has light in its veins in this early evening photograph featuring the Transamerica Tower, Coit Tower and the lights across the bay.

• Huntington Park features a number of notable sculptures. In the foreground is “The Dancing Sprites” by French sculptor Henri Léon Greber. In the background is the “Fountain of the Turtles,” a copy of a sculpture in Rome. The church is Grace Cathedral, built on land donated after the Crocker estate burned in 1906.

• The city stretches out toward the bay beneath the serpentine turns of Lombard Street.

• The Hyde/Powell cable car climbs the hill above the San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park at the Hyde Street Pier. In the bay beyond the pier is Alcatraz Island.

• A brilliant night view of the Ferry Building with the Bay Bridge extending across the bay.

• These colorful trawlers are recreational boats, rather than working fishing vessels, moored in the San Francisco Marina Small Craft Harbor. The oldest recreational marina in the city, boats were moored in the marina’s West Harbor before the 1906 earthquake.

This was ranch land in the mid-1800s, but as the city expanded Market Street grew into a busy thoroughfare supporting development of The Castro neighborhood. Beginning in the 1940s, The Castro grew into a center of gay activism. The city’s first gay elected official, Harvey Milk, ran a camera shop at 575 Castro Street.

San Francisco’s Powell Street cable cars run through neighborhoods from Chinatown, the Civic Center, Nob Hill, North Beach, Russian Hill and South Market from 6am to half past midnight.

• There may not be snow, but Christmas in San Francisco brings celebrations and ice skating to Union Square.
