Filled with anecdotes, historical photographs and memories, The Bells of San Francisco tells the story of The Salvation Army in the Bay Area, from the arrival of its founder, Major Alfred Wells, in 1883 to the organization's pivotal role in the rebirth of the South of Market district, which reshaped the city's skyline more than a century later. In these pages you'll find tales of heroism from the great San Francisco earthquake and fire of 1906 to the Loma Prieta quake of 1989, as well as the deeds of he Doughnut Girls during World War I and of local Salvation Army volunteers in the aftermaths of disasters in Mexico City and El Salvador and their eight months of efforts in the wake of New York's 9/11 attack.
