Here we are now, still the first day, up on Telegraph Hill visiting Coit Tower. The tower was constructed in 1933, a commission by Lillie Hitchock Coit. Lillie was apparently rather eccentric in her ways smoking cigars and all. She also had a life long obsession with firefighting and she herself was a volunteer firefighter. Coit Tower, named after Lillie was commissioned in honor of the firefighters of the San Francisco Bay Area.It is said that the tower resembles the nozzle of a fire hose but that has been refuted. Some urban legend I suppose. The plaza outside of the tower holds some magnificent views of San Fran.
