Another great shot from Jim Corrigan on the streets of San Francisco
A thick stick of blackthorn or oak used in Ireland, typically as a weapon.
There might have been a time when a man with a shillelagh could lay claim to property in Golden Gate Park, but those days are over.
If you’re a fifth generation San Franciscan, a loaded stick might have played a role in your family getting some propertah. This guy, agitated after threatening San Francisco Park officials, was born about 150 years too late.
