The five-star-rated San Francisco EATS Exhibition continues in the basement and the “6th Floor Skylight Gallery” (Note to self: Say what now, Skylight Gallery?) of our Main Public Library on Larkin.

Here’s a part of the ephemera and whatnot they’ve got down there – a useful map of the bay area with all the landmarks and cities laid out.

“San Francisco Eats showcases the culinary delights that can be found in the San Francisco Public Library’s collections dating back to the mid 19th century and will serve as a visual feast for visitors of all ages. From the Gold Rush to Slow Food, San Francisco has never stopped being a beacon of gastronomic delight.

This exhibition includes menus, historical photographs, an array of food writers, cookbooks and culinary history, ephemera such as coasters and matchbooks, and San Francisco food inventions, including gadgets and signature dishes.

Exhibition is on view in both the Jewett Gallery, Lower Level and Skylight Gallery, Sixth Floor.

The San Francisco Public Library is dedicated to building its collections and welcomes your donations.  For more information on how to submit or donate, contact the San Francisco History Center at 415-557-4567.
