San Francisco (part 5) / Coit Tower

All photos taken 10 November 2008.

The 210 feet / 64 meters tall Coit Tower stands atop Telegraph Hill. The observation tower was built in 1933 at bequest of Lillie Hitchcock Coit. The hall is decorated with murals made by artists who were working under federal employment programs during the Depression.

1. Starting at Washington Square Park.


2.


3. Walking up Filbert Street.


4. View towards...


5. ...Financial District.


6.


7. Looking at...


8. ...the Bay Bridge...


9. ...and on the left a cruiseship.


10. After climbing a few stairs we arrive at the tower where an elevator takes us up to the observation deck.

14. Alcatraz.


15. The famous zigzag Lombard Street.

29. Top of the Coit Tower.


30. Let's go down the wooden Filbert Steps.


31. Napier Lane, a small side-alley of the Filbert Steps with several old wooden houses.


32.


At the end of Filbert Steps is Levi's Plaza where you find the HQ of Levi's. So now you know what the initials S.F. are about on the pins and buttons of Levi's jeans. Part 2 has a picture of the Financial District from the Coit Tower, didn't want to repost it here.
