Leave your heart in San Francisco! Tour one of the most visually exciting places in the world in this fascinating collection of past-and-present photographs honoring the city's unforgettable landmarks and cityscape.There's no denying the charm of San Francisco, a city perched on rolling hills, where 'little cable cars climb half-way to the stars.'
