My Summer Location Drawing Class at AAU, San Francisco (Pt 5: the Filbert Steps)
At the top of the hill stands the 210-foot Coit Tower, built in 1933. Art deco in its styling, it is said to resemble the nozzle of an old firehose, mostly by those who have never seen one. Inside are great WPA murals depicting city life and industry, and outside, on the plaza, are viewfinders to take in the panorama of the city below. "Step up," they invite from their ringed bases. Look for the green and red "wild parrots of Telegraph Hill, "of documentary fame, flying around and landing in the trees. Next: Hyde Street Pier.
