The Rebirth of the City Beautiful Movement took place at our home on Miles Avenue.
Here is another blog of mine where I honor Boho fashion.
Here is the statue Pacifica being blown-up by the Navy:
Ina Coolbrith gave Joaquin Miller his look that he took to England where he read his poems to the Queen. The Pre-Raphaelite Artists took him in. Miller was a friend of my grandmother. The original hippies of the Bay Area were influence by Miller, Ina, London, and Sterling. Miller made a life-size statue of my kin, John Fremont, who looks west from the heights of Oakland. El Capitan looks like Gandalf.
The original hippies were about transforming the city of San Francisco where my ancestors lived, and where my father was born.
