Take a Literary Tour of San Francisco

Last updated 5 years ago

Do you know the location of the very first bookstore in San Francisco? John Hamilton Still's bookstore opened in Portsmouth Square during the fall 1849 only to be destroyed by fire a few months later.

Take a look at this cool interactive map of "Literary" San Francisco for more interesting tidbits. The map features 300 Bay Area authors, dozens of landmarks, and writers’ passages about their favorite places in the City.
