The Hyde St. Pier was an historic ferry terminal on San Francisco's waterfront. Before the Bay and Golden Gate Bridges, U.S. HWY 101 and 40 diverted onto ferries at this pier. Untold thousands of people and early automobiles plyed this route to destinations north and east.
Today it is a part of San Francisco's Maritime National Historic Park.
Several historic vessels are moored here and from the left in the photo are the 1886 square rigger BALCLUTHA, the 1914 double paddle-wheeled tugboat EPPLETON HALL, the hull of the 1895 schooner C.A. Thayer, and (behind the C.A. Thayer) the 1890 steam Ferry Boat EUREKA.
All of these ships are rare representatives of the few ships of their class, if any, that are still in existence today....
As a youth, I was constantly drawing, painting, and experimenting in fine arts. Also, I had a strong interest in architecture. Today, I enjoy photography, history, drawing and painting.
I labored over 25 years in a pre-World War II aluminum mill, some of the time on catwalks above two-thousand degree, electrically charged molten metal. At the height of my career the plug was pulled when various globalist financiers ravaged the company. In my mid-40s, I returned to college and re-educated as a computer network engineer. I currently work for local government.
My wife is a Kyoto, Japan native, so I have photographed that area extensively and some of that will probably show up in my work here.
Thank you for stopping by, and I wish...
