San Francisco is the 12th biggest city in the United States. San Francisco was founded in 1776 and incorporated as a city in 1850. The city was named after Saint Francis of Assisi. More than 815,000 people live in the urban area of San Fransisco and more than 4.2 million people live in the San Francisco metropolitan area today. The city has hit by a devastating earthquake in 1906 which left more than half of its inhabitants homeless. The city was rebuilt fairly quickly though. There are more than 50 hills within the San Francisco city limits. This photo of the San Francisco has been selected as the Daily Cool Photo on Running Wolf’s Rant for the 27th of September 2010.
