Fred Lyon’s photography of mid-20th Century San Francisco

From Boing Boing:

In the 1940s and 1950s, photographer Fred Lyon, now 89, magnificently captured the enticing noir decadence of San Francisco’s Barbary Coast and the majesty of the rest of the city. Known as “San Francisco’s Brassai,” Lyon’s work can be seen on his site and in a new monograph, San Francisco, Portrait of a City: 1940-1960.
