Airplane House

Walking east on Fulton in San Francisco this afternoon I stopped when I passed this house looking so pleasant in the sunshine. Rows of these houses face Golden Gate Park and I've passed them often enough that I hardly notice them anymore, but there was a time when this particular house seemed thrilling just to look at. Grace Slick and her band the Jefferson Airplane bought the place in 1968 and were still there in the seventies when I arrived and starting checking out significant landmarks. Earlier this year the online version of the local paper reprinted on old feature article on the house, in case more facts are wanted.
