Castro (and other) Photos

I knew Julie Brown before she had her first big MTV video hit:
"Everybody Run! The Homecoming Queen Has a Gun!"

Here we are at Books Inc. October 30. One of has has hardly changed a bit.

And here's another old friend who suddenly popped up again. "7,000 sailors can't be wrong."

The Castro Street Fair Oct. 3 was a blast. Click for more photos.

Leah Garchik's column, San Francisco Chronicle, 10/12/10: -- George Davis, the candidate for District Six supervisor who advocates public nudity for all and free dental care for seniors, held a High Nudi-Tea Party at the Castro Commons on Wednesday. Strange de Jim, who photographed the scene at 4:15 p.m., stopped back at 5:10, noting that one guy was already putting his kilt on. "Nudi-Tea Parties aren't what they once were," observes the sage Strange.
Note: Here's the photo I sent Leah from 4:15. At 5:10 one of the two guys was putting his kilt on, and the young lady had taken her top off.


I got there as the orange car joined the line of six trolleys on Market between Church & Sanchez and the driver made the passengers get off. I assumed the first one had broken down, but right after I took this photo they all moved out. I thought maybe the power had been off for the whole line, but then the other cars couldn't have gotten there. Maybe the first car was broken and got fixed, but I still couldn't figure why, knowing of the trouble, cars had still started out with passengers at Castro and then made them get off two blocks later. Any ideas?

I found this toy on top of a trash can. Judging by the spelling, a teacher was still needed.

October 21 a gas main rupture in front of Starbucks on 18th had 2 blocks of 18th & 2 blocks of Castro blocked off for a couple of hours. You could smell the gas and hear the big whoosh from blocks away.

The Giants made it to the World Series! Magnet Health Center on 18th was in full support.
