If you know what to look for, you can see the story of San Francisco in its homes. In the earliest styles, you can see the growth of the city from a scrubby frontier settlement into a cosmopolitan city. Every era had its own look. Turn of the century aesthetics show SF’s struggle with the advancements and losses of Industrialization. During the last century, change happened crazy fast. And modernist design reflects technological and social upheavals that transformed the city’s cultural and actual landscape.
