Mark Twain in San Francisco

Mark Twain in San Francisco

I love these pictures of Twain, Bret Harte and old S.F.  Many people don’t realize that Twain earned his fame out West, and spent a lot of time in San Francisco and in and around Lake Tahoe (before it was called that).  His famous jumping frog story, which made him a literary star, took place in Calaveras County in N. California.
