Bound to Fall

San Francisco Neighborhoods in Transition
Event detail

Change is the lifeblood of a city. Recent photographs of familiar San Francisco buildings document the city's pulse. Featured are icons that have either disappeared or are soon to fall, as well as some survivors.

Subjects include the Transbay Terminal, Candlestick Park, the Mission District, the Van Ness/Civic Center "hub," Dogpatch, and Pier 70. Source: SFH 477, Arthur O'Donnell Bound to Fall Collection, San Francisco History Center, San Francisco Public LIbrary.
