GREENWICH STREET STAIRS:
The Greenwich Street Stairs are a series of flights along the right-of-way of that thoroughfare which ascend the eastern side of Telegraph Hill to provide a pedestrian thoroughfare connecting Sansome Street and Coit Tower. There are a number of homes along the steps. I climbed them on January 2, 2011 and took these pictures looking upward and downward at various locations. Photos moved from another page 05/07/14.
JOE'S CABLE CAR RESTAURANT:A San Francisco institution was Joe's Cable Car Restaurant, where owner Joe Obegi "grinds his own fresh chuck daily." The restaurant, located at Mission and Tingley Sts. (near Silver), closed March 16, 2014. I took these pictures on February 4, 2014. Five photos added 05/07/14.

MATTRESS ON MINNA:This mattress lay in the gutter at Minna and Eighth Sts. in San Francisco on August 27, 2011. So what's a few stains if you need to rest? And can the police ticket a mattress for lying in a red zone? It gets a five star rating! Photo moved from another page 05/07/14.
THE PIZZA PLACE ON NORIEGA:Located near the Ocean Beach end of Noriega Ave. in San Francisco, The Pizza Place has a mural of ingredients and foods out at the beach. I was most interested in the slice of bacon sitting in the chair, so I took these pictures from a 71 bus on August 27, 2011. Photos moved from another page 05/07/14.

STOP REQUEST:On an N Judah streetcar trip August 27, 2011 I joked to my traveling companions that the first photo, in which a stop request cord is visible in the right foreground, would make the basis of a page containing pictures of such cords. I then took photos of one of the Stop Request signs within the car (Breda 1479). Photos moved from another page 05/07/14.
TROLLEY CAFFE:The Trolley Caffe in San Francisco is themed to the L-Taraval streetcar line which passes the restaurant at 24th Avenue. Picture was taken during Milan streetcar 1818 charter on May 26, 2009. Photo moved from another page 05/07/14.
