The Dashiell Hammett Tour

My review of Don Herron's The Dashiell Hammett Tour: Thirtieth Anniversary Guidebook is up on The Rap Sheet. Check out the post here.

And to whet your appetite for the review and the tour, here from a scan of the 1922 San Francisco City Directory is the listing for Dashiell Hammett and his wife Josephine in their first San Francisco residence at 620 Eddy Street.

And here is an ad for the Pinkerton Detective Agency from the 1920 directory.

Pinkerton is, of course, the famous detective agency where Hammett worked when he first moved to the city.
