I have been asked by a Belgian researcher to look up information about some photographs taken in 1918 when hundreds of Belgian and Italians soldiers arrived in San Francisco from Russia.
I have details in the photo, such as a sign that reads “BILLIARDS” above the soldiers head and newspaper articles from the Chronicle talking about the parades. But exactly where the photos are taken in San Francisco? That’s a tough one.
One site that provides possibility is Old SF. Photos from multiple online sites are placed on a map of San Francisco. oldsf.org
