San Anselmo (continued)

Some more photos of San Anselmo. All of these were taken on San Anselmo Avenue, which is the town's main street, located just to the west of Sir Francis Drake Blvd where it meets Red Hill Ave. San Anselmo Ave. runs along the infamous San Anselmo Creek, which is responsible for most of the interesting events in the town's history, as it tends to flood every few years, most recently on new years eve 2005.
The Avenue has around 80 retail stores and eateries, with a good mix of old style services (barber shop, watch repairs), a few ancient-looking boutiques and specialty stores (Chadwicks of London, Vintage Flamingo) and old & new antique and home furnishing stores (French Nest, Studiolo). Other stores worth seeking out include Rosetti (Italian notebooks), Kismet (ladies boutique), Fig Garden and the new Primo Regali (ceramics).
