Snail's Postcard Post

The City by the Bay

Just got back from a writers conference in San Francisco where I had a booth for my book covers biz.IMG_6671IMG_6672At one point in my visit, I needed one-dollar bills for bus fare. I ventured into a pharmacy to break a five, and noticed a postcard rack “4 Postcards $1.” What better way to get change! Here are the postcards I chose:



San Francisco’s Chinatown is the largest Chinese community outside of Asia and the oldest in North America. IMG_6676IMG_6677IMG_6678IMG_6679In 1922, this stretch of Lombard street took on its famous form to accommodate the arrival of the automobile, as the hill was too steep for most cars of the day to navigate head-on. 

Some more San Francisco postcards:IMG_6680IMG_6681Built in 1878, The Conservatory of Flowers in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park is the oldest wood and glass conservatory in North America.

IMG_6682IMG_6683IMG_6684I love how the color of the Golden Gate Bridge is making the fog bank glow. This is one of my favorite location postcards.
