It is difficult to define where Telegraph Hill begins and North Beach ends, and vice versa. Therefore, for the purpose of this photographic presentation I have combined the two districts. J.B. Monaco's business was located in the heart of North Beach and his home was on lower Russian Hill. Many of the images are taken from those locations. The images are presented neither chronologically nor in any particular order. In many cases the captions are an approximation of the location and date. Any information relative to further definition of specific locations and dates would be appreciated.
