Full House and Painted Ladies

Painted Ladies, a landmark of San Francisco and where the Full House show took place.

After breakfast at Sweet Maple, we went to look for the Full House, house.

“Painted ladies” is a term in American architecture used for Victorian and Edwardian houses and buildings painted in three or more colors that embellish or enhance their architectural details. The term was first used for San Francisco Victorian houses by writers Elizabeth Pomada and Michael Larsen in their 1978 book Painted Ladies – San Francisco’s Resplendent Victorians. –Wikipedia

The intro of Full House.

Man, that show brings back so many memories.

I actually watched a couple episodes from the new series on Netflix. It was surprisingly good, but a little sad—life goes by so quickly. I remember when I was a kid watching this with my sis, Michelle. It’s strange watching a throwback from 20 years ago.

Alamo Park was being renovated, but the houses looked beautiful. This was definitely a tourist attraction, and mobs of people were outside taking photos.

The house shown is located at 1709 Broderick Street, not one of the Painted Ladies on Postcard Row. The Tanner family home, zoomed out. From the opening credits of Full House, season one.

The Painted Ladies are in Alamo Square, however, a warning to all the Full House fans—these are only used for the opening credits to show the family having a picnic. The actual house where the family lived was on 1708 Broderick Street.

Anyway, it was pretty cool to swing by and see all these landmarks.
