What it is:
Photo measuring 3.5 x 5.5 inches.
What I know about it:
Nothing! Undated and unidentified.
Although I say I know “Nothing!” about the photo in terms of its source and who these people are, I’m virtually certain we are looking at two ladies strolling in front of the famous St. Francis Hotel in San Francisco, California. The awnings have changed, but the street lamps are the same. If I’m correct, they would be walking down Powell Street, almost at Geary. I have at least one other photo (of poor quality) that I believe to be these same ladies strolling along a different street in different clothes, making me wonder just how candid these photos are. I’m guessing at the very least they were known to the photographer. Regardless, I enjoy this image, and it’s fun to find a photo that was taken a ten minute walk from my apartment.
