San Francisco, 1955

Today’s quick afternoon distraction is a video of San Francisco taken in 1955.

Here are a few of my thoughts after watching it:

– Twin Peaks is naked! It was shocking to see how different Twin Peaks is today compared to the video, since most of Twin Peaks wasn’t built on until the 1960’s and 1970’s.

– Golden Gate Park in 1955 looks pretty much like Golden Gate Park in 2012, with the exception of those museums that have undergone an earthquake-induced transformation.

– Downtown San Francisco, where are your skyscrapers?

What stands out to you in the video?
