The Painted Ladies
The San Francisco Painted Ladies are a group of brightly colored Victorian Homes located at 710-720 Steiner Street across from Alamo Square Park. The term was coined, or at least first used in published literature, by Michael Larsen & Elizabeth Pomada to describe the brightly painted Victorian houses in San Francisco.
The famous “Painted Ladies of San Francisco”, otherwise known as “Postcard Row” or the “Seven Sisters”, are a row of colorful Victorian houses located at 710-720 Steiner Street, across from Alamo Square. These Queen Anne-style homes are one of the thousands built in San Francisco during its booming growth at the end of the 19th-century.
