         THE BEGINNING OF A GREAT ADVENTURE

       It is on June 17, 1776 when navigator Francis Drake landed a little farther in the North of
San Francisco in the bay which will carry its name. He planted there the British banner, but
nobody paid attention to it. Which will be called later, San Francisco, was already populated by
the Indian tribe of Ohlone. After the discovery of this new land by Francis Drake, it will be
necessary to wait until 1769 before than a Spanish expedition steered by Gaspar de Portola, arrive
in the bay of San Francisco. They built a presidio ( barracks) and a mission which should convert
and educate the Indians.

       The first boat which entered the bay was San Carlos, on August 5, 1775. It was
commanded by the Spanish lieutenant Juan Manuel de Ayala.Mexico was freed from the Spanish
custody in 1821, which allowed it to go out of this earth by the North, in the direction of
California. The Mexicans built several missions throughout their journey leading them to San
Francisco. Years after years, the lands of the church were distributed to the colonists who
constitute immense domains. The Indians were naturally able to take advantage of these lands
and let themselves shared between two civilizations.

       On July 9, 1846, while the United States are in war with Mexico, the USS American
sloop Portsmouth exceeded the Golden Gate. Captain John Montgomery planted the American
flag on Plaza, renamed Portsmouth Square. Today, in the financial district, a street was immortal-
ized with the name of this national hero San Francisco was called at first " Nova Albion "
Christianized by Francis Drake. Then when John Montgomery arrived on the lands of California,
the city was renamed " Yerba Buena”.
       Some days later, on January 24 exactly, gold was found in California. It is James Marshall
who, the first, found some gold in the American River. That brought the first gold-diggers
between Sacramento and the lake Tahoe, far from the civilization. The boss of Marshall, John
Augustus Sutter, disclosed the story in the city. First of all, the inhabitants of San Francisco took
this announcement with skepticism. Sam Brannan, arrived in city with a bottle full of nuggets in
the hand, what started a rush on its stock of shovels and pickaxes! He was the first millionaire of
San Francisco which became “The American” capital of the West. Everybody wanted to come to
San Francisco to make fortune by finding some gold. People arrived by boat from everywhere.
Since New York, the sailors followed the coasts of the Latin America to back up to the North and
left their boat to go away towards goldmines. In the downtown of San Francisco, nobody found
gold, but the neighborhood of the city made some happy guys. Naturally the other men arrived
with some ideas which made them rich.




                                                                                                    3
                                                                           History


                    THE EXPANSION OF THE TOWN
       In 1850, California obtains its status of American state. The gold began to miss, but the
money was still there. San Francisco became an overpopulated city with, as major problems, the
crime and the corruption. The honest population grouped together to make reign the law and the
order, and succeeds in it as well as it could do. The arrangement of the streets of San Francisco
goes back to the time when the city was still named Yerba Buena. In 1839 Jean-Jacques Vioget a
Swiss colonist, was engaged to design the plans of the city. He was inspired by the places of big
cities in Spain. In 1847, Jasper O' Farell, an Irish geometrician, drew Market Street and the big
blocks of the South.

       A direct telegraphic line connected the East with the West in 1860, and ten years later,
the railway was inaugurated between New York and San Francisco, what brought thousands of
east inhabitants, fleeing salaries and unfavorable economy. The railroad line was built thanks to
the knowledge and the good work of the Chinese workers on a mountainous and difficult ground.
Representing 80 % of the mass worker, the Chinese were unemployed after the end of the
construction of the line. They lived together in a district of San Francisco, what created the
current Chinatown.

       San Francisco became richer and richer and was developed between 1870 and 1880. The
idea of the Golden Gate Park originated in 1870, we inaugurated the first cable cars in 1873
which allowed to climb the famous hills of the city. The land prices climbed thanks to the
accessibility of distant zones. Banks developed thanks to tons of gold transformed into currencies,
and the first stock exchange of the Pacific's Coast is based in 1875.

                                    EARTHQUAKES
       The first big earthquake of the "new city" of San Francisco happened on April 18 1906.
The inhabitants of San Francisco was still sleeping when the earthquake of an intensity of. 8.25 on
the Richter scale, hit the city at 5:12 A.M. All the city was "opened" in only 48 seconds. More than
28,000 houses were destroyed. The gas mains were broken and the fires started. Fire brigades
had a great deal of effort to put out the various fires, after the break of almost all the waterworks!
For 24 hours, more than 26 shocks were again felt after the earthquake. Chinatown and several
overpopulated districts, were taken by the panic, ransacked by the looters. The San Franciscans
took refuge in the Golden Gate Park after the tragedy. The earthquake made 250,000 homeless!
Thanks to the help of the whole world, the reconstruction advanced really quickly and all the
Devastated zones were restored within three years. San Francisco recovered from this earthquake
successfully and could celebrate its new revival.

FISHERMAN’S WHARF
fishing fleet is docked on the Jefferson Street promenade. Take an early morning stroll down “Fish Alley” (Jefferson
between Hyde and Jones) to view the fishermen at work.
Family entertainment is the specialty along Jefferson Street with attractions such as the Ripley’s Believe It or Not!
Museum and the Red & White Fleet. Visit with Hollywood Celebrities, U.S. Presidents, world leaders and the
Chamber of Horrors at the newly-renovated Wax Museum. A variety of specialty shops and restaurants are located at
the Anchorage and The Cannery. Ghirardelli Square, once home to the world-famous chocolate factory, has been
renovated to an open-air center filled with specialty shops, international restaurants, an ice cream parlor and displays
of the original chocolate-making machines.
Experience San Francisco’s authentic maritime history at the San Francisco Maritime Park which extends from
Aquatic Park to Hyde Street Pier, the only floating National Park. Board the world’s largest collection of historic
ships.
The park’s Maritime Museum, at the foot of Polk Street, houses ship models, photos, artifacts and changing exhibits.
The USS Pampanito, a WWII submarine located at Pier 45, offers a glimpse at life as a submariner with its state-of-
the art audio tour.
Fisherman’s Wharf is famous for its Italian seafood restaurants with waterfront views. Vendors along Jefferson Street
sell Dungeness crab from steaming cauldrons and walkaway seafood cocktails. Since 1849, the Boudin family has
baked the original San Francisco sourdough bread; clam chowder in a sourdough bread bowl is a signature San Fran-
cisco dish.
The best way to reach fisherman's Wharf is by cable car (Powell-Mason/Hyde line) or historic streetcar (MUNI F-
line).

ALCATRAZ
Alcatraz, Spanish for pelican, was named Isla de los Alcatraces after the birds that were the island’s only inhabitants.
The island served as a military fortification in the 1850s and an incarceration facility for war prisoners during the
Spanish-American War.
In 1934 Alcatraz became the infamous maximum-security prison for Mafia criminals and high-risk convicts. Famous
island residents have included “Machine Gun” Kelly, Al Capone and Robert “Birdman” Stroud. Although the island
is only a mile from shore, there is no evidence of any successful escapes across the icy bay. The prison was the only
one in the federal system that touted hot showers—a luxury designed to keep prisoners from acclimating to cold wa-
ter.
A federal penitentiary until 1963, “The Rock” is now a popular tourist attraction. The 12-acre island is part of the
Golden Gate National Recreation Area and is accessible only by the Blue & Gold Fleet ferry which departs daily
from Pier 41 at Fisherman’s Wharf.
From 1969 to 1971, a group of American Indians seized the island as a protest against the Bureau of Indian Affairs.
Much of the facility was destroyed during this period, but the main block, mess hall and lighthouse remain intact.
NOTE: During peak travel times, reservations must be made well in advance. Advance tickets may be charged to a
credit card by phone, (415) 705-5555.

PIER 39
PIER 39, the second most-visited attraction in California, is located at Beach Street and the Embarcadero just two
blocks east of Fisherman’s Wharf. This renovated cargo pier hosts over 10.5 million visitors annually. PIER 39 is
home port to the Blue & Gold Fleet and offers two levels of waterfront restaurants and specialty shops, a 350-berth
marina, Aquarium of the Bay, the Venetian Carousel and Turbo Ride (a simulation theatre). Visitors information is
available at the California Welcome Center. The famous sea lions make their home on K-Dock (seasonal).

GOLDEN GATE BRIDGE
The Golden Gate Bridge (Highway 101 North) links San Francisco with Marin County. Before its completion in
1937, the bridge was considered unbuildable because of foggy weather, 60-mile-per-hour winds and strong ocean cur-
rents sweeping through a deep rugged canyon below.
At a cost of $35 million, the 1.2-mile bridge took more than four years to build. Eleven men lost their lives during
construction. Often shrouded in thick fog, the bridge sways 27 feet to withstand winds of up to 100 miles per hour.
The color of the bridge, known as International Orange, was chosen because it blends well with the bridge’s natural
surroundings. The two great cables contain enough strands of steel wire (80,000 miles) to encircle the equator three
times. The concrete poured into its piers and anchorages would pave a five-foot wide sidewalk from New York to
San Francisco. Pedestrians and bicyclists are allowed across the bridge on pathways with sweeping views of the City,
Alcatraz and the Marin Headlands. The bridge toll for vehicles is $5 collected when entering San Francisco.
Vantage points include the Toll Plaza and Visitors Center (before crossing the bridge), Fort Point (under the bridge)
and the Marin Headlands (the last exit in Marin County before crossing the bridge). The best way to see the bridge is
to walk across it which takes about an hour round trip. When walking the bridge dress warmly whatever time of year.

GOLDEN GATE PARK
Golden Gate Park is among the world’s greatest urban parks. Approximately three miles long and a half mile wide
(1,017 acres), this treasure is covered with grassy meadows, wooded bike trails, secluded lakes, open groves, gardens
and several museums.
The California Academy of Sciences, a three-in-one museum, consists of the Morrison Planetarium, Steinhart Aquar-
ium and the Natural History Museum.
The Conservatory of Flowers, built in 1879 and modeled after London’s Kew Gardens, is a glass Victorian displaying
a paradise of flowers. (The Conservatory is currently closed for repair.) Strybing Arboretum and Botanical Gardens
contains the Garden of Fragrance, the Moon-Viewing Garden and the New World Cloud Forest. The Japanese Tea
Garden is a four-acre refuge of traditional Japanese architecture, koi ponds and bamboo trees.
The herd of bison that graze in an enclosed paddock just off Kennedy Drive have been a tradition at the park since
the 1890s. A Visitor’s Center is located in the Beach Chalet at the West end of the park near Ocean Beach.

VICTORIANS
Nearly 514 blocks of San Francisco, including much of Nob Hill and Van Ness Avenue, were destroyed by the 1906
earthquake and fire. Many beautiful examples of nineteenth-century Victorian architecture were lost in the disaster.
Today some 14,000 Victorians have been preserved west of Van Ness Avenue in the Cow Hollow, Pacific Heights
and Alamo Square districts.
Distinguished by their design features, the three styles of Victorians include the Italianate, the Stick and the Queen
Anne. The Italianate which flourished in the 1870s is identified by a flat roof (often hidden behind a false front), slim
pillars flanking the front door and bays with side windows that slant inward. These narrow row houses were patterned
after Roman Classical ornamentation. Outstanding examples of the Italianate can be found at Bush and Fillmore
streets.
The Stick, which peaked in popularity during the 1880s, added ornate woodwork outlines to the doors, frames and
bay windows to the Italianate design. Other additions included the "French" cap, gables and the "three-sided rectangle"
bays. View classic San Francisco Sticks at Laguna near Bush streets.
Designs changed dramatically with the Queen Anne Victorians in 1890. Turrets, towers, a steep andgabled roof,
arches, spindles, glass art windows and sections of shingle siding distinguish the Queen Anne from her predecessors.
Tour a grand Queen Anne, the Haas-Lilienthal House, located at 2007 Franklin at Washington. (Tours given
Wednesdays and Sundays only.)

COIT TOWER
Atop Telegraph Hill is the 210-foot Coit Tower, built with funds left to the City by philanthropist Lillie Hitchcock
Coit for the beautification of San Francisco. Due to Coit’s admiration for the fire fighters who fought the 1906 earth-
quake fires, many believe the tower was designed in the shape of a fire hose nozzle. The view from atop the east side
of the tower spans 360 degrees. Inside, you’ll find a history museum and murals that depict working life in 1930s
California.

THE HAIGHT
The history of the Haight is as colorful as the Victorian architecture that lines the streets of this neighborhood. The
Haight Ashbury community is universally recognized for its creativity and diversity expressed by the hybrid mixture
of shops, residents, and its landmark place in history. The style and ingenuity that started in the sixties still rings true
today. There is a myriad of eclectic shops, restaurants and cafes that reflect the individuality of the proprietors and
the community. The San Francisco sound can still be heard from the many popular nightclubs. The Grateful Dead
were one-time residents of the Haight (710 Ashbury Street).

OCEAN BEACH
Ocean Beach is a three-mile stretch of Pacific coastline. While not suitable for swimming, the beach is a great place
to sunbathe, stroll and view a sunset.
The Cliff House sits on a rock perched over the Pacific Ocean with a view of Seal Rocks (a popular hangout for sun-
bathing seals).
The original Cliff House structure was a posh playground for San Francisco’s elite, former presidents and writers in-
cluding Mark Twain. North of the Cliff House are the remains of the Sutro Baths, once the world’s largest swimming
pool. Seven indoor fresh and saltwater swimming pools were housed under a giant stained glass canopy until the
structure burned in 1966.
The Beach Chalet, built in 1925, is a historic landmark that houses fresco murals by Lucien Labaudt and the Golden
Gate Park Visitor Center.

CHINATOWN
As you pass through the dragon-adorned Pagoda Gates on Grant Avenue at Bush Street, your senses will be tempted
by the aroma of ethnic cuisine, bright neon and the sound of foreign languages.
The heart of Chinatown is Portsmouth Square where San Francisco’s first Chinese immigrants settled in the 1850s.
Today, Chinatown is home to more than 10,000 of San Francisco’s Chinese residents.
Most local Chinese commerce remains along Stockton Street where visitors will find traditional herb pharmacies,
temples, fortune cookie factories, garment factories, fresh produce markets, seafood and poultry shops, and many
fine restaurants.

YERBA BUENA GARDENS/SOMA
The area south of Market Street continues to be transformed from vacant ware-houses on industrial lots into a fash-
ionable neighborhood. The South of Market district (SoMa) has emerged as the art and nightlife center of San Fran-
cisco and offers a collection of restaurants, cafes, galleries, bars and nightclubs.
Yerba Buena Gardens, the city’s urban redevelopment plan, includes the Center for the Arts, a visual and performing
arts complex, 5.5 acres of gardens with an outdoor performance area, the Martin Luther King Memorial, the Zeum
(an arts and technology center), an ice skating and bowling center, and San Francisco’s historic Charles Loof Carou-
sel. The METREON (a SONY entertainment center) features 15 theatres, an SONY IMAX® theatre, interactive
attractions, playlands, shopping and dining. The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA) is now the sec-
ond largest modern art museum in the United States.
