San Francisco

"That City of Gold to which adventurers congregated out of all the winds of heaven. I wonder what enchantment of the 'Arabian Nights' can have equaled this evocation of a roaring city, in a few years of a man's life, from the marshes and the blowing sand.” 

Robert Louis Stevenson

"To this day the city of San Francisco remains to the Chinese the Great City of the Golden Mountains."   

Kai Fu Shah, Chinese Minister to U.S. 1914

“....this marvelous city.  Bazaar of all the nations of the globe,  (compares) with the fantastic creations of ‘The Thousand and One Nights’ ” 

Edmond Auger,  French gold hunter seeing San Francisco in 1849
