1. Luisa Tetrazzini's gift ends S.F. era on high note - SF Gate. There was a huge throng present that night - some said as many as 250,000 people (Submitted on February 18, 2014, by Barry Swackhamer of San Jose, California.)
2. Lusia Tetrazzini. Tetrazzini's voice was remarkable for its phenomenal flexibility, thrust, steadiness and thrilling tone. She enjoyed a highly successful operatic and concert career in Europe and America from the 1890s through to the 1920s, but her final years were marred by poverty and ill health.

3. Lotta's Fountain. It should tell one something about San Francisco in the 1870s that the monument was given to the city not by a politician or captain of industry, but by a famous Vaudeville performer, Lotta Crabtree. Lotta loved the city and had gotten her start there during the Gold Rush days, when she would dance on barrels in saloons for miners who would throw gold nuggets at her feet.
