KIRKUS REVIEW

Informal highlighting of San Francisco's history, from the gold rush with its bravura characters, to the stage of those who ""did"" the miners out of their gold, and on to the rise of civic consciousness, the growth of the city, 1906 with its fires and earthquakes. A sort of California Currier and Ives., illustrated with old prints. Biggests market -- West Coast. Good gift item.
