  1. China Books & Periodicals was for years in the 70s and 80s a progressive/radical presence on 24th Street, run by Henry and Gertrude Noyes with their son Christopher and daughter Nikki. Supporters and comrades of China’s socialist revolution could obtain books and magazines like China Reconstructs during the Cold War when the U.S. government did not recognize the People’s Republic of China. There should be a plaque to preserve this history.

  2. It wasn’t in the Mission, but I am mourning the loss of Cafe du Soleil on Waller and Fillmore. It had fabulous food, ambience and a sense of community developed by the warmth and charm of their great employees and owners Mustapha and his wife. It was a neighborhood institution and anchor.
