On this Halloween I’ve been thinking about Victorian and Gothic architecture and scary  houses called to mind the many historic architecture of San Francisco. A great wrap-up can be found here —> Museum of the City.

I particularly identify the City of San Francisco with the Mediterranean Revival Style (1920-1950s) found in many grand homes west of Twin Peaks.

Also a quintessential San Francisco style can easily be the First Bay Tradition Style (1880-1915), which you will find with the many residences in San Francisco built on very narrow lots. Think of 19th Avenue.

The Palace of Fine Arts, pictured here is Beaux Arts; Roman and Greek simulated ruins.

And last but not least Art Deco; the Golden Gate Bridge.
