Saturday scenes: here's Jerry!

The deceased Grateful Dead lyricist, guitarist, and all-round musical genius is a very present figure in the city of his birth. He grew up in the Excelsior neighborhood, attended Balboa (public) High School, and never really left this playground by the bay.

His boyhood home rates a plaque.

In Civic Center, his image is embedded in the sidewalk in front of Bill Graham Auditorium.

In the Haight-Ashbury neighborhood, he overlooks the street scene benignly from a mural covering an entire exterior.

All encountered while Walking San Francisco.
