Founded in 1776 by Spanish settlers and named “Yerba Buena”, San Francisco was later re-named to honor Saint Francis of Assisi.  The city became popular in 1848 due to the Gold Rush and in 1967 due to the social phenomenon known as the Summer of Love when as many as 100,000 people, mostly young 'hippies' converged on the Haight-Ashbury region and the lyrics "Be sure to wear some flowers in your hair'" echoed across the world.  This poster depicts the famous Golden Gate suspension bridge which spans the 'Golden Gate'  and connects Marin county in the north to the city.

The poster is part of a set of United Äirlines travel posters that we have available. They are a wonderful piece of aviation and advertising history as posters such as these hung on the walls of travel agencies, as well as UAL offices worldwide.
