Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. After the great 1906 earthquake and fire in San Francisco, the Barbary Coast became more of a tourist attraction than its predecessor. Dance-floors and variety shows designed to shock the tourists replaced prostitution as the chief business and many of the dance crazes that swept America during this period were originated in this section of San Francisco. The Thalia, located on 732 Pacific between Kearny and Montgomery, and both the largest and most popular dance hall on the Pacific Coast, was the birthplace of both the Texas Tommy and the turkey trot.show more
