by Gelett Burgess and Will Irwin


With an introduction by Richard A. Lupoff



THE PICAROONS was written in 1906 and shows a city that was full of people with hope and potential. Little did they know that in two years their beautiful city would be destroyed by earthquake and fire. Burgess and Irwin have written a love song to the old Barbary Coast city that was more similar to the 60s San Francisco than you would think. The introduction by Richard A. Lupoff places the book and its time in perspective.
