Petulia - Archie's Apartment, Exterior

  After the picnic in the park Archie brings his friend May to his apartment, 307 Filbert Street on the Filbert Steps in the Telegraph Hill neighborhood.

Then ...  When they arrive, just a few steps up from Montgomery Street, Petulia is waiting for them and she has brought somebody along with her.

... and Now,  today's view looks as it did then with a view of the Bay Bridge and Yerba Buena Island across the Bay.


Then ...  Petulia has brought Mr. Howard of the Companions of the Evergreen Lodge to retrieve the tuba.  Archie's apartment entrance, number 307, is behind him.

... and Now,  other than the railings these two buildings (below) haven't changed in over 40 years.  The Christmas tree adds a seasonal touch - coincidentally one of the interior apartment scenes later in the movie is at a Christmas gathering.
