We’re going vertical today. Fire escape staircases on turn-of-the-century buildings are probably the most normal thing in the world if you are a US citizen but they are not if you are a Euro-guy like me. Reason is: we don’t have it. At least not on older buildings. Even though I’ve seen it many times before I was still fascinated by those antique steel constructions and just had to take some photos.
This one here was shot on Russian Hill near Van Ness Avenue, pretty close to our hotel.
