SAN FRANCISCO VISITORS REGISTER
Dave Lange writes:
"Until I moved to New Jersey in 1994, I lived in San Bruno within a mile of the Pacific Region Archives. One would think that I'd have taken the time to visit there looking for records of the SF Mint, but of course I didn't. I suppose that's the same mentality that precluded my seeing Yosemite while I lived in California. I'm now doing my very best to avoid taking advantage of New York's many museums and tourist attractions. I suppose that's the price we pay for spending so much time reading!"
A web search turned up this entry at the Oakland Museum of California:
"Anyone contemplating a visit to San Francisco should absolutely include a day at the Oakland Museum, just across the bay. In addition to its fine art collection, this is the real repository of California's history, far more so than any museum in SF. One is able to go from room to room with dioramas and artifacts illustrating the social and economic history of the state from native times to the present. The Oakland Museum also has a pretty good bookstore."
