A redux of our highly popular June 16 tour, this Tenderloin East tour explores “ghost signs”—faded, hand-painted signs that once advertised a product or business—and vintage neon signs along the corridors of Ellis, Eddy, Golden Gate, Leavenworth, Jones, Taylor, Mason, Powell, and Market Streets in San Francisco.
This virtual tour features vintage neon signs and ghost signs (those faded, hand-painted signs on the sides of buildings, or on storefronts that advertise a product or business). You will see a rich collection of photographs, video clips, maps, and historic research compiled by hosts Al Barna and Randall Ann Homan, SF Neon preservationists, and Kasey Smith, SF Ghost Sign Mapping Project creator, and artist. Tour includes histories of unique small businesses that once thrived in the Tenderloin plus the legacy businesses that have survived against considerable odds.
