Presumably made by the city of San Francisco in the mid-to-late 20th ce. to bolster tourism and civic pride, this button most likely served as a keepsake for anyone who had the pleasure of visiting the idyllic city. In particular, the lenticular button features a typical view of San Francisco—from the glorious Golden Gate Bridge to the famed trolley cable car transportation system.
