|Vertigo then and now: "before and after images of various San Francisco locations used in Alfred Hitchcock's 1958 masterpiece." (via fimoculous)
San Francisco of my early childhood in the 60s did not look much different. "Vertigo," when I saw it in college, summed up the feeling I always had in San Francisco as a child, similar to the way "Chinatown" hit a familiar mood I had experienced in Los Angeles in my adolescence.
Harold and Maude is another SF bay area flashback.
The south bay in particular seems like a simpler, more innocent place in these 1971 images.
