SAN FRANCISCO FACTS: During the Great Depression, not a single bank in San Francisco failed. In fact, business was so good that the city constructed the Golden Gate Bridge and the Oakland Bay Bridge during that time.

The Beatles gave their last full concert at Candlestick Park on August 29, 1966. 25,000 tickets were sold,

although the park had capac- ity for 42,000 people. The band played 11 songs.

The U.S. Navy originally planned to paint the Golden Gate Bridge black with yellow stripes. The famed “International Orange” color was intended to be a sealant.

Levi Strauss invented denim jeans in San Francisco for the Gold Rush miners who

Reprint from 1984, “The early days of Sigmond!

needed durable yet comfortable clothing.

Before it was renamed to San Francisco, this small city by the bay was called Yerba Buena. Yerba Buena means, “Good herb” in Spanish. It was founded in 1776, but renamed in 1846. Portsmouth Square in Chinatown was the location of the public square in Yerba Buena.
