I like to go on walks around San Francisco. I really enjoy looking at all the work and detail that goes into making some homes here so very beautiful and special. The pictures above are from the Pacific Heights neighborhood. In the early days of San Francisco these magnifiencent homes were built to rival those of another neighborhood called Nob Hill. This neighborhood was essentially rescued from destruction in the in 1906 San Francisco earthquake and fire by the sacrifice of many stately homes that were given up so that these could be saved. This part of San Francisco today is considered an architectural museum of 19th century Victorian mansions.
