Mission Dolores, 1950's
I'm a sucker for vintage images, especially when they have vintage automobiles in them. Throw in the fact that this 1950s shot just happens to match an actual frame from the Alfred Hitchcock classic, "Vertigo" and you can bet I did my darndest to acquire it!
Unfortunately this slide was undated, but there does appear to be a tree in front for the film that is not in my slide (or else the bus is artfully hiding it). Whoever took this vintage photo stood in the exact same spot that the cameraman for "Vertigo" did. How's that for coincidence?!?
Another frame from the film, showing Kim Novak about to enter the Mission.
How the Mission looked in 2001 from the same angle. That little tree in front sure has grown up!
