For several years, our Haight Ashbury neighbors and
long-time residents Jack and Gay Reineck (Rufus Graphics) have been
working on a project to design and publish a new, concise but thorough, history
and guide to the Haight Ashbury. The project stemmed from a local discussion
about a HaightAshburyMuseum;
in lieu of a museum, not possible at this time, they’ve created a nifty little
“paper museum” that tells the story of the Haight from before the 1906 earthquake
through the 60s (including sex, drugs, and rock 'n' roll) and to today.
With a fascinating text, and a detailed Haight Ashbury map, accompanying
over 100 photographs, many of them historical, and some from contemporary
photographers including Lisa Law and Herbie Green, this is a terrific book for
visitors and residents alike.
