San Francisco's Lost Landmarks

The second Bancroft Round Table of the Fall Semester will take place at noon on Thursday, October 18, in the Lewis Latimer Room of the Faculty Club. James R. Smith, will give a talk entitled ?San Francisco?s Lost Landmarks.?

San Francisco is famous for having rebuilt itself after the 1906 earthquake. In reality, San Francisco has rebuilt itself many times, and is in a constant state of metamorphosis. Despite these many changes and facelifts, San Francisco has been a legendary travel destination and one of the world's premier places to live and work for over a hundred and fifty years. James Smith, who has written the book "San Francisco?s Lost Landmarks," will talk about and show images of some of the fabulous pieces of San Francisco that have been lost from sight and help explain why this is the case.

Bancroft Round Tables aim to display the manifold collections of The Bancroft Library. The campus community is invited to attend this informal talk which should be a delight to all who call the Bay Area home, and informative for visitors seeking an historical tour of the American West?s Imperial City.
