9780738528748: San Francisco's Marina District (Images of America)

When driving into San Francisco across the Golden Gate Bridge, the sweeping vistas and greenery gradually give way to the city's charming and inviting Marina District. This area is undoubtedly one of San Francisco's most picturesque and best-known neighborhoods and is famous for its aesthetic and historic appeal. Adjacent to the Presidio, the Golden Gate, and Chrissy Field, the Marina hosts a large number of Art Deco structures and the famed Palace of Fine Arts, a resplendent collection of buildings originally designed for the Panama Pacific International Exposition of 1915. The exposition was held to celebrate the opening of the Panama Canal, but also to show the world that San Francisco had recovered and rebuilt from the 1906 earthquake. The Marina rose from the site of the Pan Pacific to become one of the city's most desirable and recognizable districts, known for its architecture, culture, and dramatic waterfront setting.

About the Author:

Only a short time ago, much of the Marina was again damaged in the 1989 earthquake. This stirring collection of 200 vintage photographs and other visual memorabilia celebrates the district's history, beauty, and resilience. Compiled by city historian Dr. William Lipsky, these images show a neighborhood that is worthy of the recognition it has garnered through the years as a unique showcase of San Francisco.
