Today I walked with a few friends in the South of Markek area.  We met at Brannan Strreet and one of our little merry band took on the role of showing us her neighborhood.  Unlinke a SFCityGuides Tour, this was a Walking tour, more of  a social gathering than a historic tour.  Gone was the blurb about how CA was founded and instead we  spoke of the history of the Delancy Street organization, it good work and how it helped to rejuvenation the area.




No one in our group knew who Brannon was, or who and why the street was named after.  All we had to go on was the plaque on the street! But hey this was supposed to be an Architectural walk, does Brannon really matter?



I have a habit of tasking pictures of hearts everywhere I see one, and one popped up here!


Across from the Heart one3 can get a good look at the changing face of the SOPhotobucket



The day went on short on history, hi on commentary of what people thought worked and not.

Though out the area there are plaques that tell one who bothers to read them what they area once was ...

Buyried in the upscale manicured lkaws and gardens little gymslips of thew area's maritime past can be seen.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
