Tramps of San Francisco was created to share my passion for the history of San Francisco and surrounding communities. I’m a local history buff and sometime author who, in a single lifetime, will never discover everything there is to know about San Francisco’s past but is determined to sally forth and try!
I’ve always had an interest in history but it wasn’t until I began volunteering as a docent, finding artifacts at estate sales, and exploring the history of the western United States that my real appreciation for local history came to the fore.
Here’s a brief summary of my background:
