Caen's unabashed homage to the city of San Francisco. Herb Caen (1916 - 1997) was a San Francisco journalist whose daily column of local goings-on and insider gossip, social and political happenings, painful puns and offbeat anecdotes was "a continuous love letter to San Francisco" that appeared in the San Francisco Chronicle for almost sixty years and made him a household name throughout the San Francisco Bay Area.

Wonderful read!

This book was acquired from the estate of Robert Yuen, a fourth generation San Franciscan, and a lifelong collector of hotelware.
