Alley #4 -- February 9, 2010

Vernon Alley, near the China Warehouse, is too modern-looking for my taste, but it was named in honor of Vernon Alley, the string bass player, who spent many years working in and around San Francisco. He was also an alumnus of Count Basie and Lionel Hampton's bands. Vernon Alley died in 2004.

It was very cold today.
