Castro Street the famous center of the gay community in San Francisco is busiest just south of Market St and 17th Street.
The centerpiece for this area is the beautiful Castro Theatre designed by Timothy L. Pflueger in 1922.

 Pfleuger based the exterior design on Mexican cathedrals and many of the original deco details including the tiled ticket booth remain intact.

The street is lined with shops catering to the gay locals and tourists who throng the neighbourhood The merchants often display a camp and wicked sense of humour.
