Discovering Noelie - Exposición

4/01/14 - 7/10/2014

Eureka Valley/Harvey Milk Memorial

Eureka Valley: Área Principal

1 Jose Sarria Court

An exhibition exploring the history of Eureka Valley through the display of found objects from one person’s life. Discovered on the stairs outside of the Eureka Valley apartment that she occupied before passing away in 1999, Noelie Jensen’s papers, photo albums and photographs bear witness to a woman who lived her entire life in Eureka Valley. 

Her life spanned the change in the neighborhood from the working class, Irish and Swedish immigrant community of Eureka Valley of the early 20th century to the present Gay enclave of The Castro.

Augmenting her personal photos are photos taken from the collection of the San Francisco Public library documenting the physical change of the neighborhood as it transformed during the last half of the twentieth century.  The transformation of Eureka Valley to The Castro is told through the photographs of a resident that witnessed the transformation of not only a neighborhood but a city.
