I haven't visited this great museum since it was in a wing off the old de Young in Golden Gate Park. I think it's about time I visited again and can make it a pilgrimage to City Hall, too, where my grandmother worked for years as secretary to the Board of Supervisors. Thanks for this, Lester, beautifully done.
