The Tenderloin District of San Francisco Through Time with Peter Field

Friday, May 10, 2019 - 12:00pm

Join historian Peter Field for a brief history of the Tenderloin district's beginnings as an isolated and once-placid piece of real estate known to early San Franciscan's as St. Ann's Valley; followed by its development into a thriving middle and upper-class Republican family neighborhood; and its subsequent transitions into a hotel, entertainment, and vice district. It also traces its most recent changes into a Post-War inner city poverty center.

 

Peter Field worked as a psychiatric case manager with the homeless mentally ill in San Francisco's Tenderloin and South of Market districts, as well as in Contra Costa and San Mateo Counties. He has lead history tours of the Tenderloin and Richmond districts for City Guides for the last 13 years.
