City by the Golden Gate, queen of the West, with only one drawback—" 'tis hard to leave."

M. Sasek echoes Kipling with more views than the 42 hills. The bridge across the bay; Golden Gate Park with 1,000,000 trees; Stow Lake and koala bears; Chinatown's Grant venue; Peking ducks and pagoda phone booths; Union Square with its underground garage and a hotel that washes your money.

Foggy day, bright blue sky—M. Sasek paints at cable-car slant all the famous landmarks.  Pink, blue, gold horizons, a city most charming, a city most loved—This is San Francisco!
