San Francisco began as a small outpost during the Gold Rush in the mid-1800s. By the early 20th century, the bustling town of colorful Victorians and brick buildings had blossomed into an important port on the West Coast. The 1906 earthquake and fire changed all that, but the city endured and rebuilt. Today it’s a booming city of the digital age, filled with skyscrapers, bridges, grand movie palaces, and Victorian houses. In this chapter, we’ll explore the architectural masterpieces that grace the rolling hills of one of the most beautiful cities in the world.
