"More than almost any city, San Francisco instills a fierce loyalty in residents and exerts a compelling charm on visitors. But few admirers explain why they love the city. Here Life's Nat Farbman, who has traveled the world and lived in glamorous Paris, tells in words and pictures what draws him to his home town."
