Coit Tower Viewing Platform - PHOTOGRAPHER COMMENT

Panorama showing the viewing platform at the top of the Coit Tower in Pioneer Park in San Francisco. Access to this platform is ticketed and via a small lift. I found the architecture and silhouettes of people standing by the repeating windows interesting. By wondering round the different windows (there are 24 of them set in 8 triplet groups around the tower) you get good views over various parts of San Francisco. This San Francisco skyline panorama shows what the view would be like from here if suspended in mid air without the tower.

Panorama showing the art deco Viewing Platform inside the 210ft tall Coit Tower on Telegraph Hill in Pioneer Park. As befits the most distinctive landmark on the city-side skyline (who could argue that the Golden Gate Bridge is the most distinctive on the bay-side), the interior of this Tower is unusually bold and striking in design, said to be influenced by European styling from the mid 1930s. Yet although it is certainly distinctive in its understated simplicity, it does also fulfill its mandate to beautify the city (the bequest of it's benefactresses Lillie Hitchcock Coit) - it simply puts those magnificent views center-stage.
