Peter Hartlaub is the pop culture critic at the San Francisco Chronicle. He also writes the Our San Francisco project, breaking down 150 years of the city’s history in weekly chapters published in The Chronicle newspaper, on sfchronicle.com and in his SFGate.com blog The Big Event.
As part of the Our SF project, Hartlaub, Chronicle deputy director of photography Nicole Frugé and library director Bill Van Niekerken have been meeting every week, searching the archives for the Chronicle’s most striking and iconic images of life in the Bay Area, and picking the best of the best for this store.
Photos included in this store showcase memorable moments from local history, as captured by The Chronicle’s professional photographers. Check back frequently as more one-of-a-kind photos are added.
