The San Francisco of the 40s and 50s revealed in stunning photographs

The San Francisco of the 40s and 50s revealed in stunning black and white photographs from the collection of photographer Fred Lyon, who captured with talent the special atmosphere of this legendary American city. His photographs are also available in his book San Francisco: Portrait of a City 1940-1960. In the same vein, I also recommend you The Hong Kong of the 50’s captured into beautiful photographs.
