Walking Tour #7 -- March 11, 2012

Today I did a walking tour for people who bid on me for an auction at a school on the Peninsula. They were a nice group who asked good questions. As usual, we met in front of Peet's Coffee in the Ferry Building and went on from there. They liked the murals in Rincon Annex and Jackson Square. The rain held off. We had lunch at the Irish Bank.

I was surprised to see that the Hippodrome has become an art supply store.  I remarked that they had stuff piled in front of the reliefs of naked women.  A member of the tour suggested that this was because children might be visiting to buy art supplies. 

I took the photo of Bliss and Faville's Southern Pacific headquarters many years ago.
