And yet, the Golden City is so much more than postcard vistas. Its a town alive with history, culture, and a palpable sense of grandeur best captured by a man known as San Franciscos Brassai. Walking the citys foggy streets, the fourth-generation San Franciscan captures the locals view in dramatic black-and-white photos— from fog-drenched mornings in North Beach and cable cars on Market Street to moody night shots of Coit Tower and the twists and turns of Lombard Street.

In San Francisco, Portrait of a City 1940–1960, Fred Lyon captures the iconic landscapes and one-of-a-kind personalities that transformed the city by the bay into a legend. Lyons anecdotes and personal remembrances, including sly portraits of San Francisco characters such as writer Herb Caen, painters Richard Diebenkorn and Jean Varda, and madame and former mayor of Sausalito Sally Stanford add an artists first-hand view to this portrait of a classic American city.
