Renowned photographer and environmentalist Ansel Adams grew up in this Outer Richmond home at 129 24th Ave., according to the "1932 San Francisco Social Registry" (Social Register Association, New York City).
The Adams family home was completed in 1903 in the sand dune area overlooking the Golden Gate. Adams reportedly suffered a broken nose in an aftershock of the San Francisco earthquake of 1906 while living here.
Adams may be best remembered for his black-and-white photography of the American West, most notably of Yosemite National Park. He died in 1984 at the age of 82.
