A WORK IN PROGRESS The architectural data in this section was first researched over twenty-five years ago by the late Anne Bloomfield, and more recently—in depth and with meticulous attention to detail—by Michael Corbett, with whom I worked in 2007-8 on a survey of the Tenderloin for the National Register of Historic Places district nomination. Historical details have been drawn from my own research and personal experience, as well as the painstaking research of friend and fellow historian Peter Field, who each spring and fall gives free historical walking tours of the Tenderloin, which I highly recommend to all.
A friend just turned me on to this amazing history of the Tenderloin. It’s long and very detailed with LOTS of historical photos and images. I’ve only read about half so far but wanted to share it.
