This is a 1991 Wayne Holder and Elizabeth Newman map of the Mission District, San Francisco, California. A description of the map published in the May 1991 edition of the North Mission News
describes the map best:
A Book Lover's Guide to the Mission is a handy, pocket-sized guide to the many bookstores and cafes in this culturally rich and ethnically diverse neighborhood. It also lists galleries, theatres, and other places where booklovers hang out.
The front has drawings of thirty-four shop fronts, and listings of almost fifty establishments. On the back, you will find descriptions of each place, along with hours of business, addresses and telephone numbers.
In a departure from the usual competitive nature of business, many of the small shops in the area, as well as the Mission Branch of the San Francisco Public Library, contributed to help make the map a reality. Wayne Holder, owner of Manzanita Used Books and Records, created the map with local graphic artist Elizabeth Newman.
Newcomers and visitors can use the map to become acquainted with the neighborhood, and even long-term residents may find a few surprises. The neighborhood is constantly changing, so we plan to update the listings periodically. On this page you’ll find we have added six new cafes that have opened since the first edition of the map was issued in late February. The map is available at most Mission district bookstores and cafes. Pick up a map soon and take a walking tour of the neighborhood!
