Explore Mission Bay—Without Taking a Step!
|January 5, 2009||Posted by jamie under Events||
I’m not sure how much Rincon Hill neighborhood history will come up during this “Armchair Walk,” but I’m certain that there will be plenty of interesting details about the history of Mission Bay and other nearby neighborhoods. Mark your calendar if you’d like to learn more about your City!
Armchair Walk – Hidden Waters Tour
Saturday, Feb. 7, 4:00-5:00 pm
Mission Bay Branch Library
960 Fourth Street (@ Berry)
Join San Francisco City Guides volunteer Rob Spoor on a casual “stroll” through Mission Bay and surrounding neighborhoods — from the comfort of your chair at the Mission Bay Branch Library beginning at 4:00 p.m. on Feb. 7th.
The “Armchair Walk” incorporates Spoor’s own photos, as well as
pictures from the library’s San Francisco Historical Photograph
Collection, to explore the history and development of Mission Bay.
Discover the changing uses of the bay; evolving from a food source for native people to a commercial area crisscrossed by wharves and rail lines to the largest construction project in San Francisco since the 1906 earthquake and fire!
The event is offered free of charge by City Guides, a program of the San Francisco Public Library and a project of the Tides Center.
