      a gorgeous book of photographs taken all over san francisco. historic images that were taken both before and after the earthquake of 1906 are positioned side by side with modern day shots of the same places. the historic images are amazing and comparing them to how things look now is interesting. the captions are informative, and give a bigger picture of the history of san francisco, including the people the streets are named after, how industry has evolved and how the city came to look as it do [...]

      San Francisco history buffs, you better recognize. As in, you should read this book. "San Francisco Then and Now," offers such a great look into what over 150 years, two insane earthquakes, a gold rush and countless other changes can do to a city. (Hint: It's a lot). No matter how long you've lived here, you're bound to learn a little something new about the "City by the Bay."

      If you haven't been to the city, put it on a to do list. Read the book after or during the trip there. Go ahead punk, make my day.
