san francisco mobile museum, looking for lociThis is Bruce, and he came to opening night and added a story to our map. Our map is of the Bay Area, and his note was pointing to the far east.

He just got back from Beijing where he spent time looking for the location of his grandfather's home. It got plowed over with a freeway. Other special homes like this that remain are being bought up by folks with nostalgic ties to area. The city is starting to take notice.
