Memory Monday slide redux, Week 13

My next batch of slides date from 1956 and start with a trip to San Francisco. I originally shared these images back in January 2017 (see Memory Monday, Week 8). In that previous post I wrote about the long history of the Red and White Fleet; even today their boats cruise San Francisco Bay, setting out from Fisherman’s Wharf and carrying tourists past Alcatraz, under the Golden Gate Bridge, and back.

In 1956, Alcatraz was not a tourist destination — it was still a high security federal prison

A nice view of Sausalito from Harbor Queen, 1956

Next week, we’ll return to the Golden Gate and the Cliff House!
