Frankenstein, Bridges, and a Dead End

What do Frankenstein, Bridges, and a Dead End have in common?
Other than being on this blog post, they are all photos taken in San Francisco.
This gentleman with Frankenstein on his back was walking through Fisherman's Wharf advertising for the local wax museum.

Here's three versions of the Golden Gate Bridge if you count the shadow on the ground.
The model bridge in the foreground allows visitors to shake, push, and twist it to show how wind and earthquake vibrations affect the actual bridge.

I saw this interesting street sign while walking up towards Coit Tower.
You can't tell by the picture, but the walk is a little steep and maybe a good place to hang onto the sign post for a rest.

Have a good weekend!

The Golden Gate picture is fantastic, when I was in San Francisco, I didn't see Frankenstein.

Greetings,

I love this post! I would really love to visit SF one day and I love to see a little bit of how it looks. The hilly roads and steep streets are part of what attracts me so!

One of my friends might be stationed there next year and if so, I promised to visit before they leave so who knows, I might finally get there.
