I've seen many photos of them with the San Francisco skyline looming behind them. Just being here is like stepping int o TV show.

The ornate Victorian houses around Alamo Square are in a style made popular during the reign of Queen Victoria. Many were lost during the great fire after the 1906 earthquake. Many more lost their ornate fixtures during World War I and II scrap drives. Thankfully many have been restored to their former glory. If only I could afford one.
