Photographic Print. Art Deco Apartment building in Buena Vista Heights neighbourhood, San Francisco, California.
Buena Vista Park was originally established as Hill Park in 1867 from an area of sand dunes and chert. John McLaren, the superintendent of parks and designer of Golden Gate Park, developed the original forestation of the hill after it was dedicated as Buena Vista Park in 1894. This stunning example of Art Deco architecture was built in 1931. From here the paths meander up and down a labyrinth under a lush canopy of Oaks, Redwoods, Pine, Cypress and Eucalyptus, covering 36 acres and a main path spirals to it's peak of 575 feet. During the eathquake and fire of 1906, people gathered there for 5 days for safety. In the "summer of love" in 1967, hippies occupied the park, Haight Street, Haight-Ashbury neighbourhood and Golden Gate Park.
