Tell everybody down in ole Frisco tell them Tiny Montgomery says hello
Maybe Someday you say were going to Frisco, stay a couple of months I used to love San Francisco, I was there for a party once She's Your Lover Now / Bootleg series /
It's true, I just can't recall, San Francisco at all, I can't even remember El Paso honey!!!"
China Bay is the section between the city and South San Francisco by Candlestick Park (not far from the airport). Cheers, David Gitin Date: 10 Dec 2005 From: Jack Nestor Subject: San Francisco, China Bay or China Basin? To: Regarding the "San Francisco" entry in the Dylan Atlas and the reference to China Bay, there is no China Bay that I know of in the area. The area described in the contribution of David Gitin is actually on the San Francisco Bay and that would make China Bay the only bay-within-a-bay I have ever seen. China Basin does in fact exist and is a minor inlet and shipping channel not far at all from the financial district of San Francisco (to the south) and was a pretty seedy area until the current park in which the Giants play their home games was built on the banks of China Basin. I worked in the area while I was in college for the grand-daddy of the bicycle messengers whose office and dispatch was near there. I might suggest a seperate entry in the Atlas for China Bay.
