Kids' Book Buzz/SanFrancisco Book Review - Sonja, Age 9

"Overall my favorite part was how the pictures were colored like photographs from that time. I think this book would be amusing to kids ages 7-11 who are curious about their city’s past. You have to really study, pay attention, and see what’s different in the pictures. Some kids might just flip through the book and not notice. If you look in your past, you will find something interesting." - Kids' Book Buzz/SanFrancisco Book Review
