Always enjoyed San Francisco's historical buildings.
Beauty or eyesore?

Douglass,

This is a great shot for the reason that it displays so much complete contrast between the straight stark well defined rigid texture/mood of the fire escape with the totally rounded curvature of the windows and trim around them. I would say the company that put in the fire escape probably just used the space it had available to make the building safer and probably up to code required by law.

Best Regards,
Tom

Eyesore but photographically interesting.

I would guess that the fire escape was added years after the building was built to meet the newest building codes.
The older the city the better opportunity to capture the character of years past.
Thanks everyone for the comments.
Bob
