About the Author Editor Ryder W. Miller is a noted commentator and environmental reporter, eco-critic and science writer with a strong interest in space exploration and space policy.

About the author (2003)

Collected by San Francisco historians Greg Gaar and Ryder W. Miller, these vintage photographs show a San Francisco that no longer exists.
