About the Photos

Our holdings include hundreds of glass and film negatives/transparencies that we've scanned ourselves; in addition, many other photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs) in the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) They are adjusted, restored and reworked by your webmaster in accordance with his aesthetic sensibilities before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here. All of these images (including "derivative works") are protected by copyright laws of the United States and other jurisdictions and may not be sold, reproduced or otherwise used for commercial purposes without permission.

Brunch with Cesar: 1956

Brunch with Cesar: 1956

My mother, grandmother and Cesar Romero; San Francisco, CA 1956.

I'm assuming this was taken during brunch based on the mode of dress, table setting and menu offerings.

My grandmother was active in the arts and social circles of San Francisco during this time; I wish I had more of her photos available, I'm sure there were some great photo ops. View full size.

Three lookers

I've always thought that Cesar Romero was exceptionally good looking, and your mom and grandmother were both beautiful!

Great photo of regular people!

What a wonderful memory. It must have been such fun to live in the Bay Area in the 50's. (I was born in Berkeley in '61)
