In February 2020, Pluto Press published Hidden San Francisco: The Guide to Lost Landscapes, Unsung Heroes, and Radical Histories by
Chris Carlsson. This video, on Harry Bridges, long-time leader of the International Longshore and Warehouse Union and the namesake of the plaza in front of the Ferry Building, is the 7th of a baker's dozen
of "stops" (there are 85 "stops" in four themed chapters, and an
additional 44 "stops" in five walking tours in the appendix) turned into
short videos. I hope it will whet your appetite for both buying the
book (available at http://www.chriscarlsson.com/hidden-san-francisco-the-book/) but more importantly
for going out into San Francisco and peeling back the layers of
histories to find out how the hell it turned out like this!
