Laura Pierce shares a visit with Trish Johnson to the Coit Tower in San Francisco. Fabulous murals and one particularly nice view, even on a hazy day, out a circular window. It would make an interesting hooked rug. So would many parts of the murals, painted during the Depression by artists paid by government grants, surely one of the nicer stories from that grey and desperate time. So great that they’ve been appreciated and maintained all these years!
When Trish Johnson comes to town… we try and get together in San Francisco! This time we visited Coit Tower… a wonderful little spot in North Beach.
The murals inside Coit tower are the result of several artists paid by the government during the depression. it was good to get paid to paint, eh! notice the gentleman getting robbed on the right.
The murals depict a moment in time; the 1930’s. Trish and I decide to pay the money to ride the elevator to the top of Coit Tower… and the viewing deck. The line begins around the corner.
Trish and I love the murals of the agriculture in California; the apricots and vineyards and wine!
