San Francisco Golden Age Postcards

Price: $45.00

By Glenn D. Koch, Hard Cover, First Edition, Second Printing, 188 Pages.
This is THE San Francisco postcard book! Over 750 postcards, photos, artifacts and souvenirs. A stunning pictorial history of San Francisco's Golden Age as seen through vintage postcards and memorabilia. Collector and author Glenn Koch has assembled a visual mosaic often bypassed by scholarly histories of San Francisco. Here is a colorful insight into how one of America's best-loved cities presented itself to the world, from  the 1906 earthquake and fire, through pageants, parades, and world fairs. Includes photos of unique neighborhoods, schools, cemeteries and churches, hotels, and  restaurants.

The book includes a special section on the 1915 Panama-Pacific International Exposition (PPIE) , a singular event that set the high-water mark for unabashed self promotion and pageantry. Here in one volume are some of the most rare and colorful graphics ever produced as postcard art.
