Two 'Towers' --- Day 8/24

Walk: Research for Ciwt's Art and History Tour Begins
Distance: A few blocks, Pedal, Yoga

          Original de Young Museum 1914

                                                     Current de Young Museum

What a difference a couple of earthquakes make.  The original de Young was outgrown, enlarged, destroyed by the 1906 earthquake and replaced by a new museum.  But that one was damaged in the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake and 'replaced' by the current iteration above.  Well, at least they both have towers. That's another - and controversial - story.
