Above San Francisco: 50 Years of Aerial. Robert Cameron (1911-2009) was a famed American photographer and publisher of 17 books featuring aerial photographs of cities throughout the world

Above San Francisco: 50 Years of Aerial. San Francisco Then and Now®Hardcover. Robert Cameron (1911-2009) was a famed American photographer and publisher of 17 books featuring aerial photographs of cities throughout the world. Nina Gruener grew up thinking her grandfather, Robert Cameron, had the coolest job around. The story of Cam is a tribute to the sense of wonder with which Robert Cameron approached every city.

Arthur Watterson Hoppe (April 23, 1925 – February 1, 2000) was a popular columnist for the San Francisco Chronicle for more than 40 years. He was known for satirical and allegorical columns that skewered the self-important. Many columns featured whimsical characters such as Homer T. Pettibone and a presidential candidate named Nobody.

San Francisco, For more than a century, writers and poets have tried desperately to grasp the elusive Camelot. It is, perhaps, more a quest for a photographer. Surely its God-given beauty has never been more thoroughly captured than in these exquisite photographs by Robert Cameron. From his helicopter soaring over this idyllic setting, Bob Cameron has looked down with a God-like eye and recorded with his camera what God sees. He has recorded it for you, gentle reader, and for generations yet to come. Here in these pages is proof that, yes, once there was a Camelot.

San Francisco... For more than a century, writers and poets have tried desperately to grasp the elusive Camelot. It is, perhaps, more a quest for a photographer. Surely its God-given beauty has never been more thoroughly captured than in these exquisite photographs by Robert Cameron.

All of these photos are by Robert Cameron and all of them are gorgeous. These postcards have a matte finish so the photos don't look quite as spectacular as they could, but these are still lovely postcards. There are images that you'd expect, such as the Golden Gate Bridge from the air (which doesn't detract from a great image). And some were a surprise. I liked the one showing the Academy of Science's green roof. I've been to this museum in Golden Gate Park many times, and that includes the viewing platform you can access for the "living" roof. But to see it like this postcard from the air is a treat.

Each postcard is 6 ¾" x 4 ¾". The cardstock is a little thicker than usual. I'm going to play it safe and use full first-pounce postage on these cards.

The cards arrive gummed in a stack. I found that they can be removed out of of order, from the middle of the stack, if I'm careful. The exception is the last postcard, which is for some reason glued in. You have to tear off part of the message side to remove it. It's still useable, but odd.

A nice set published by Cameron.

Happy Reader

I was really excited about ordering this set of cards. Unfortunately when I received my purchase, I realized that I'm not going to keep it. Though the composition and technical quality of some of the photos leave a lot to be desired, the main problem is that the publisher really screwed up preparing the images for printing - the prints turned out too dark and grainy. The only good thing worth mentioning is the paper quality - it's really heavy weight carton, silky and matte, perfect for writing on and mailing without envelope.

This is a great photo book of the San Fransico bay area. It includes just about every area around, including San Jose, Oakland, Stanford, etc. It has photos of the city, Silicon Valley and most of the major Computer companies and chip makers such as Intel and AMD. Living in this area, I really like this book as I can see what my area looks like and there are a lot of photos, including every major bay bridge.

Whenever we have friends or relatives visit from out-of-state or overseas, we give them a copy of this excellent picture book. This works particularly well for our non-English speaking visitors who may peruse the pages - remembering all the exciting places we've visited during their stay!
