Learn about the Tenderloin's history from an isolated hamlet to development to residential neighborhood.

About this Event

San Francisco's Tenderloin District Through Time, traces the neighborhood’s history from its beginnings as St. Ann’s Valley, an isolated hamlet in the sand dunes, and its development into a middle- and upper-class residential neighborhood of single family homes dotted with schools, churches, and mansions. We’ll see how it became San Francisco’s upscale hotel, entertainment, and vice district, and how it transitioned into the post-war central city it remains today.

Peter Field has a masters degree in psychology from San Francisco State University and is a retired mental health case manager who worked for decades with the homeless mentally ill in San Francisco’s Tenderloin, South of Market, and Haight Ashbury districts, as well as in San Mateo and Contra Costa Counties. He is the author of The Tenderloin District of San Francisco Through Time, a history of San Francisco’s Tenderloin District. He has given numerous presentations around the Bay Area, and has appeared in several documentaries and in a number of radio and print media interviews. He has led City Guides tours of the Tenderloin and Inner Richmond districts since 2007.
