City Plate - San Francisco

$50.00
Part of our sixth series of City Plates.  The theme of this sixth collection is "American Dreams." Each of the cities in the series (Boston, San Francisco, Hollywood, and Palm Springs) has inspired the spirit of the American dream.  Whether it was freedom from religious persecution, the promise of fortune and fame, or the desire for a golden age of leisure that spurred the growth of these four cities, they are all landmarks—historically and architecturally— that represent the persistence of a national ethos full of ambition and optimism.

The California Gold Rush put San Francisco on the map for tens of thousands of Americans and immigrants from around the world.  What was once a small settlement became a boomtown connected to the rest of world by sea and rail. This pioneering and entrepreneurial outlook helped San Francisco recover from the devastating earthquake and resulting fire of 1906, and is still a palpable quality of the city today.
