Peet's Update

My neighbor, Sally Woodbridge, tells me that Mr. Peet's original store was on Polk Street in San Francisco - she used to buy coffee beans from him there in the 1950s. So the "Original Peet's" on Vine St. was not actually the first. Sally has her own interesting blog (sponsored by our mutual SF friend, Robin Chiang), continuing the work that she began as the West Coast correspondent of Progressive Architecture. A recent blog post describes the incredible landfill operation that she and I discussed earlier today, apropos the State Health Building's demolition. Sally is probably best known locally for the guides to Bay Area architecture that she's coauthored since the 1960s.
