Book review

San Francisco is a patchwork of unique neighborhoods, and one of the most distinctive is the Richmond District. Stretching from the city’s dense urban core outward to the rocky, rugged cliffs of Land’s End, the Richmond contains schools, shops, churches, hospitals, and citizens from many different backgrounds and countries. San Francisco historian and tour guide Lorri Ungaretti, author of San Francisco’s Sunset District, showcases here a stirring collection of vintage Richmond images, detailing this district’s journey from windswept sand dunes to the modern and livable place we know today. Among the Richmond’s long-gone sights are cemeteries, farms, racetracks, and improvised cottages built in the wake of the 1906 earthquake. The area remained mostly rural through the 1880s, when mining entrepreneur Adolph Sutro (who also developed Sutro Heights and Sutro Baths) put in a commuter rail line to connect San Francisco’s central district with his entertainment destinations in the “Outside Lands” near Ocean Beach. The Richmond District’s history includes large cemetery plots that are now covered with homes. In addition, the various roadhouses, racetracks, and amusement parks in the area made it what Ungaretti calls “the city’s playground.” They’re gone now, but remain important parts of the Richmond’s fascinating history.
