In preparing for an upcoming project by Famento, I recently learned about the “Shades of San Francisco” project at the San Francisco Public Library.  Susan Goldstein, the city archivist, told me about their ongoing efforts to collect photos and interview residents in different neighborhoods.  The photos really give you a glimpse of how San Francisco has changed over the years.  You can check them out for yourself here:  http://sfpl.org/news/onlineexhibits/shades/shadesinfo.htm.  I especially liked the “Street Scenes” section.  They’ve also interviewed the residents for the stories behind these pictures.  Unfortunately these aren’t online, but you can probably find them in the main branch of the library.
