We see San Francisco dressed in fine attire, a bit chaotic without the street markngs but it seems to be running smoothly. 1905 painted a very well groomed picture of San Francisco. Fast forward and we now have homelessness, drug addics on the streets along with their needles, feces on sidewalks, prostitutes flaunting. It is considered very unsafe and dirty. What happened? When and how did it decline? I don't think everyone has to look like they came out of a fashion magazine but observing the residents in 1905 they seem to display something pure and clean about them. What kind of spirit invaded this city?
Articles reveal how many are leaving San Francisco.
