The Crookedest Street in the World

Lombard Street PostcardThis postcard was postmarked in 1954 and shows San Francisco’s Lombard Street, “the crookedest street in the world”. On the back:

Lombard Street, between Leavenworth and Hyde Streets winds tortuously eight times within the block.
An unexcelled view of San Francisco, and the Bay may be seen from the top of precipitous Lombard Street.
