Barbary Coast Prostitute Walking Tour

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Ivy Anderson and Devon Angus, authors of the California Historical Society Book Award-winning Alice: Memoirs of a Barbary Coast Prostitute, walk and talk you through the vice districts of 20th century San Francisco, just before closure of the infamous Barbary Coast. Enjoy discussions of S.F. history, politics, and geography framed around the story of "Alice Smith," a sex worker whose memoir electrified the city during its serialized publication in 1913. FREE

Tour begins at the historic San Francisco Bulletin office at 814 Mission St. (behind the Westfield Mall), and ends at City Lights Books in North Beach, for a reception with light refreshments. Walk should last two hours total, and includes no significant hills or staircases. Comfortable shoes and layered clothing are highly recommended. Content of the talk may not be appropriate for small children.
