About the Book
The unseen history of San Francisco includes violent battles along the waterfront, a bombing on Market Street, a former dynamite factory, and more. Explore it with Wendy Crittenden & Tom Griscom, two contemporary photographers with contrasting styles, who roamed the city's streets seeking traces of its explosive past.
