Publisher's Summary

You can walk thru Haight Ashbury and talk about the Victorian architecture and the neighborhood's late 19th/early 20th century history. Or you can talk about 1967 and the Summer of Love, when this neighborhood became the nexus of a cultural and political transformation. Or, you can talk about both - and weave together the fascitinating pastiche that is Haight Ashbury. On the premise that it is no mere coincidence that the Summer of Love happened here, this tour blends views of this neighborhood's distinctive architecture with the stories and legends of that magical summer over 40 years ago.
