Once again, beautiful pics.

A personal note: The shot of the "American Conservatory Theater" is actually of an annex which is of recent origin when ACT took over a building on Market St and painted it what I consider an awful red color. The main theater is on Geary St.:

I don't get it, why that Urban Curry India Cuisine dressed like a strip club.

The south Asian restaurant is next door to the strip club. That block of Columbus Ave. is historically fascinating. It used to have a combo Filipino restaurant/Punk night club (the Mabuhay) across the street and also on that block is the Hungry I club which was a Mecca in the Folk era. The several strip clubs are also anachronistic, left over from a period in the mid 20th century when topless waitresses were a thing. A block in one direction is Beat poet Lawrence Ferlinghetti’s City Lights book store—still going strong—and in the other is a pizza place where “Godfather” director Francis Ford Coppola used to be found making pizza in the kitchen sometimes (several of these photos show the Cafe Zoetrope which Coppola owns and which features wines from his vinyard).

Mabuhay Gardens was a major punk and new wave venue in the heyday of those scenes.

Cool photos--I like part 2 better than part 1 because you got more into the architecture.
