Painted Ladies is a term used for Victorian and Edwardian buildings painted in three or more colors that enhance their architectural details. About 48,000 houses in the Victorian and Edwardian styles were built in San Francisco between 1849 and 1915 with the change from Victorian to Edwardian occurring on the death of Queen Victoria in 1901, and many were painted in bright colors. One of the best known groups of "Painted Ladies" is the row of Victorian houses on Steiner Street bordering Alamo Square park in San Francisco. This block appears very frequently in media photographs of the city.

Opening in 1898 on the site of the 1875 wooden Ferry House, the Ferry Building became the transportation hub for anyone arriving by train from the East, as well as from all the East Bay and Marin residents who worked in the city. From the Gold Rush until the 1930s, arrival by ferryboat was the only way travelers could reach the city from the East. All but abandoned in the 60s and 70s, the Ferry Building was remodeled and again hums as a transportation hub and busy gourmet marketplace for the city. The Marketplace, organized along the central Nave, provides a distinctive space for bringing together the greater Bay Area's agricultural wealth and renowned specialty food purveyors under one roof. The exterior and main public hall have been restored to their original grandeur for use by ferry passengers and the public at large.
