One of the wonderful things about living in San Francisco is being surrounded by historical buildings and monuments. I especially love the beautiful Victorian houses with all of the intricate details and vibrant colors. During The Summer of Love, thousands of young people came to the Haight Ashbury district which resulted in a cultural and political revolution. Artists, hippies, students, druggies and musicians all descended upon the neighborhood. Just one block up from the intersection of Haight and Ashbury is a "Queen Anne" style house that was built in the 1890s. It was the communal home and headquarters of the "Grateful Dead" between October 1966 and 1968. While taking these photos, many tourists came and also took pictures in front of the iconic home. It's great to be reminded that I live in a city that inspires people come and visit from all over the world and they enjoy spending a little time in the place I get to call my home.
