Sparkling Sundown Over Beautiful San Francisco PDF Print E-mail


Your travel4seniors.com editor caught this fantastic scene shot from an upper floor balcony of the InterContinental Mark Hopkins Hotel. It brought back long-ago memories of the Top Of The Mark. In war years of the 1940s and 1950s, Navy crews had a last visit and drink at the rooftop bar before shipping out to combat in the Pacific.

Then, after coming back to San Francisco from wartime sea duty, they’d gather again at The Top Of The Mark to celebrate their good fortune. Then with nostalgic toasts, remember those shipmates who would never return.
