Event detail
Add to my calendar
 

The 49 Mile Scenic Drive was designed to show off the best of the City to visitors attending the 1939-40 Golden Gate International Expo. 75 years later, Kristine Poggioli and Carolyn Eidson walked the entire route, researched the history, and turned their adventure into a turn-by-turn guidebook: Walking San Francisco's 49 Mile Scenic Drive. Their lively, inspiring visual program is filled with the new sites and strange stories they uncovered on the way.

Learn more about History and Genealogy through the wealth of resources available at the Library.

Take Part is a project of the Public Knowledge partnership between San Francisco Public Library and SFMOMA. 2018-19 photographic images of the model, courtesy of Beth LaBerge
