Walking the Historic District (A Self-Guided Tour)

Start at the southwest corner of Union and Montgomery in front of Cadre, the framing shop at 301 Union (#1) (the location of the former Speedy’s market) to begin your self-guided walking tour of the Telegraph Hill Historic District. By the time you finish, you will have traversed some ten blocks and seen just about all of the Historic District’s approximately 100 buildings. Although this building is just outside the Historic District, Speedy's market was a fixture on the Hill, serving its residents for almost 93 years until closing in 2008. The Spediacci family from which it took its name bought the building while it was under construction in 1915 and operated the market for over 35 years. D
