Historic Sites Then and Now

Visual Tour of Past to Present

San Francisco may have the beauty and wonder of a modern city but it does hold some rather intreaging sites which have been around for over 100 years which are worth taking a tour of. Most of these sites are even free but I will be hard to not spend money at some of them. Some of these sites are well known and others are lesser know. Below are pictures of historic maps and locations which still exist today:
