San Francisco's Fisherman's Wharf gets its name and neighborhood characteristics from the city's early days of the mid to later 1800s when Italian immigrant fishermen came to the city by the bay to take advantage of the influx of population due to the gold rush. 📷 by @gabriout #fishermanswharf #sightseeing #sightseeingday #streetsofsanfrancisco #sanfran #sanfrancisco #immigrantstories
In 1964, the original Palace was completely demolished, with only the steel structure of the exhibit hall left standing. The buildings were then reconstructed in permanent, light-weight, poured-in-place concrete, and steel I-beams were hoisted into place for the dome of the rotunda. All the decorations and sculpture were newly constructed. 📷 @jitendra.jain8 #palaceoffinearts #palaceoffineartssanfrancisco #streetsofsanfrancisco #sanfrancisco #sanfran #citylife #citylifestyle #californiawinter #californiabound

Did you know...the model for the bear on the state flag lived in Golden Gate Park. His name was Monarch, he weighed 1,100 pounds, and he was one of the last wild grizzly bears in California. He was captured and brought to a zoo in the park in 1889 and lived there for over 22 years until he was euthanized due to old age in 1911. 📷 by @conniecristinphotography #sanfrancisco #sanfran #sanfranciscocalifornia #sfcalifornia #sfwinter #californiawinter #californiawinter #streetsofsanfrancisco #sanfranciscostreets #didyouknow #tuesdaytrivia
