City Lights at 60: Then & Now Photos

City Lights is turning 60!

As part of our  “Then & Now” series where we share photos from our archives, let’s take a look at our neighbor across Kerouac Alley, the world-famous saloon, Vesuvio. A regular hangout of Jack Kerouac and other famous Beat poets, Vesuvio has become a major stop for pilgrims on the Beat trail.
