Alley #15 -- January 11, 2011

Down Burritt Street, on the left-hand side, Sam Spade's partner Miles Archer met his doom. I remember Herb Caen writing that the white-on-blue street sign still hung on the wall, just as it had in The Maltese Falcon. Almost immediately, someone stole the street sign. Now there is a standard black-on-white sign and a plaque that gives away the identity of the murderer. I took the photo on 03-January-2011.

Today it was very cold and it rained at lunch time.
