Spots Unknown - a great blog about San Francisco


Our friend Jeff Diehl has a new blog called Spots Unknown that's devoted to "exploring & infiltrating the forgotten places, events, and histories of San Francisco." It's off to a promising start. The most recent post is about 1958 film footage of the city (shown above).

A film colorist at a local Chicago production house inherited a bunch of 16mm Kodachrome film shot in the late '50s by his grandparents. Cars driving down Lombard Street. The silhouette of the guy smoking the cigar in the window is classic. I also like the moody accompanying music.
