> Wednesday, January 18, 2006: Introducing... North Beach

 
(click the thumbnail above for a larger format)

I'll consider this my initial post and official introduction to North Beach although, technically, the James Brown photo was taken in that neighborhood already.
In the late 1800s, thousands of Italian immigrants settled in this area also known as Little Italy. There's a lot to say and show about it and one has to start somewhere, so I'll start with the first thing that I personally noticed the first time I went there, and that is... the Italian flags on all the posts. Quite convenient to remind you of which neighborhood you're in!
On this photo also (if there was any doubt), the Transamerica Pyramid in the background.
