3/26 - Simon finds a FiDi fixer-upper

Simon thought this newspaper box might make a nice little house for him, but I told him it was a money pit.
I’ve walked by this section of Market Street a zillion times, and I never noticed this plaque until Simon pointed it out to me.  Who knew San Francisco played such a key role in slot machine history?  http://www.noehill.com/sf/landmarks/cal0937.asp
More history – about the ECV, who sponsored the plaque:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/E_Clampus_Vitus
Again, who knew?  Thanks, Simon!  What an excellent history lesson you found us today.
