Join us on Zoom for “Lost Department Stores of San Francisco: Six Bygone Stores That Defined an Era”, which focuses on the history of the early days of San Francisco.
In the late nineteenth century, San Francisco’s merchant princes built grand stores for a booming city, each with its own niche. The I. Magnin empire catered to a selective upperclass clientele, while middle-class shoppers loved the Emporium department store, with its Bargain Basement and Santa for the kids. Gump’s defined good taste, the City of Paris satisfied desires for anything French and edgy, youth-oriented Joseph Magnin ensnared the younger shoppers with the latest trends.
San Francisco’s Lost Department Stores looks back at the strong, colorful personalities who created six major stores that defined shopping in San Francisco before the days of the Internet.
Join us for a look back at a different era of retail shopping as well as some fascinating historical glimpses of SF!Presenter: Anne Evers Hitz, author “Lost Department Stores of San Francisco,” is a fifth-generation San Franciscan and a great great granddaughter of one of the Emporium department store’s founders, F.W. Dohrmann. She is also the author of Emporium Department Store and San Francisco’s Ferry Building.
A graduate of UC-Berkeley, Hitz is a writer, editor and project manager who has had her own communications consulting firm in San Francisco for more than twenty-five years. She is a guide for SF City Guides, a group of local volunteers who give free walking tours of San Francisco. http://annehitz.com/This event is organized by the Stanford Women’s Club of San Francisco who have invited us to co-sponsor it. Their Club is celebrating the 100th anniversary of its founding this year. In only 90 years, NEXT Village will celebrate our 100th anniversary. Meanwhile we are excited to be celebrating our 10th anniversary this year!https://nextvillagesf.org/event/womens-conversation-group-d2u/

A unique opportunity to share what’s on your mind regarding this often-unspoken subject. It’s not morbid, we promise! If ever we needed a place to talk about death, this is it!
Death Café’s (http://deathcafe.com/what/) have been steadily gaining fans. At Death Cafe people, often strangers, gather to eat cake, drink tea and discuss death. A Death Cafe is a group directed discussion of death with no agenda, objectives or themes. Even though you will all be in your homes, please enjoy some tea and cake during the call!
