But those who have been under the shadow,
who have gone down at last
to elemental things,
will have a wider charity.
H. G. Wells, 1866 – 1946

San Francisco
I went a day early to view the collections.

While waiting for the museum to open at 10 a.m., I toured City Hall only a block away, as well as waited with a crowd for the ruling by the California Supreme Court on Proposition 8 that invalidated future same sex marriages in California but validated 18,000 past marriages!

San Francisco City Hall

In 1872, a cornerstone was sealed and installed in San Francisco's City Hall. Four bottles were included: one of grain, of Baker's extra flour, of Champaign, and this bottle of port wine by I. Landsberger (no relation?) & Co. port wine, and the beginning of the wine industry in California

Of course, I couldn't resist the podium.
