Remembering San Francisco - Vesuvio

After that last grousing post, I thought I'd show this really neat building in San Francisco and the sidewalk beside it. It's the Vesuvio Cafe, a landmark saloon established in 1948. We didn't visit it, but watched people coming and going from the restaurant across the street. Looked like a hopping place.













And right there, in an apartment over a business, someone was drying their laundry. Maybe that's where the term, 'airing dirty laundry' came from. lol

I do too, and San Francisco has a lot of unexpected things to see.

Hi Marti...Interesting laundry photo, the screen door looks like a fence gate.
Did you visit the spiritual reader in photo #1?
San Francisco has that New Orleans vibe going on, never know what you're going to find down those side streets.

LOL, no we didn't go to the spiritual reader. We were making the rounds of bookstores when I took these pictures. And yes, you never know what you are going to find in San Francisco.

I thought the door on that balcony looked like a shower door. It may just have been a big crank out window even.
