Roy's Postcards: 1986/08/09

Inscription:

We walked up this street las tonight on our way to dinner at the Golden Phoenix. From there, we rode the Cable Car to Sa Fishermans Wharf where everyone else on this Super Activity went to Ripley's Believe it or not Museum. When it closed at midnight. We drove down Lombard Street. Then we got back to the Shonsen's at 1:50 am.

Postcard back:

CHINATOWN, SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA
Grant Avenue, the main artery of San Francisco's Chinatown, combines the mystery, culture and architecture of the Orient to truly make Chinatown a city within a city.

Leonard's comments:

The neon pagoda atop that Baskin Robbins sign cracks me up.
