Bastille Day, 2021 -- July 14, 2021

San Francisco Call, 14-July-1896

Happy Bastille Day, everyone. 125 years ago in San Francisco, the Chutes, an amusement park, and Sutro Baths were celebrating the holiday. The vaudeville bill at the Orpheum Theater included Fred McCart's Dog, Money and Baboon Circus.

"No dictator, no invader, can hold an imprisoned population by force of arms forever. There is no greater power in the universe than the need for freedom. Against that power, governments and tyrants and armies cannot stand."
- J. Michael Straczynski
