A 21-minute “homage to the city of San Francisco by amateur filmmaker and inventor Tullio Pellegrini.”

Still going strong 57 years later: Van Ness Avenue, Fisherman’s Wharf, Golden Gate Park, the Marina, Twin Peaks, the zoo, the Cliff House, Market Street, Chinatown, cable cars, and The Crookedest Street in the World.

Defunct: Playland and the Sky Tram.
