The return of Sparkletack!
It’s with great joy that I make this post. The best San Francisco podcast has returned to us after a far too long hiatus. The first new episode is “the crocker spite fence“.
History is rife with bizarre confrontations and grand feuds, but in San Francisco none were more bizarre than the showdown between Charles Crocker (bellicose railroad robber baron) and Nicholas Yung (unassuming German undertaker).
Call it “a tale of two egos”. It was over a very small piece of land, but this property was located on center stage of 1870’s San Francisco — the very top of Nob Hill.
The new website still has a few bugs in it but you can listen to the episodes right on the site until the RSS is fixed. Welcome back Sparkletack!
