Abstract:

"Did you know that ... Contrary to the 'official' report of 674 dead, over 3,000 people died as a result of the Great Earthquake of 1906? The San Francisco Ballet Company, founded in 1933, is the oldest resident classical ballet company in America? The remains of a 3,100-year-old woman from a tribe of hunter-gatherers were found during the excavation of the Civic Center BART Station? History buffs, armchair adventurers, trivia masters, and devotees of the City by the Bay will delight in the San Francisco Almanac, with its veritable gold mine of information, including a full chronology of city politics and government, a complete guide to San Francisco's urban flora and fauna, a fascinating glimpse into the City's arts and culture scene, and much, much more. Name your subject - movies, sports, maritime history, Victorian houses, or geologic faults - and you're sure to find it in this all-new, completely revised and expanded edition of the San Francisco Almanac. Gladys Hansen was the city archivist at the San Francisco Public Library for 47 years. She is now the curator of The Museum of the City of San Francisco"--Unedited summary from book cover.
