San Fran PMC

A 'Proper Motor Car' parked on the corner Grant Avenue and California Street in San Francisco. The heart of Chinatown.
The building behind is an icon that was built after the 1906 earthquake which was a McDonald's for many years and now a generic Chinatown food court.


Greg, lead on...

"As you may know the famous musical
Rodgers & Hammerstein song from the NY theatrical production that
became an 1961 film ' Flower Drum Song' is about the lyrics 'Grant Avenue
San Francisco, California USA!' '...ding dong your in Hong Kong...' pop tune. 
Nancy Kwan was the lead actress. 
The architecture of the building was created to look like old China in a caricature 
what Westerners would perceive in a way."
